A variety of rich greens and burgundies provide the Celtic Cross with an ornate and beautiful background whilst iconic Celtic knots add extra visual decoration. It’s rather ambiguous as to what the exact symbolism of the Celtic Cross is. Historians and cultural experts are often in two minds about it and when it first came into use. One strong possibility is that the early Christians in Ireland where naturally heavily influenced by ancient Druid designs, perhaps a sun symbol, and thus incorporated the cross into their own very old cultural narrative.
