Floral Three Bar Cross

 

 
This cross is known as a three bar cross due to the upper horizontal bar which represents the sign that read, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews," the middle horizontal bar where Christ's arms were stretched out, and the lower diagonal bar where Christ was pierced through the feet. The flowers that adorn this cross represent how even though the cross is a symbol of the death of Christ, yet through the resurrection the cross can also be life giving.
