The cross has been the central emblem of Christian faith since the beginning of Christianity. It may take many forms in herladry or on brasses, but wherever it appears its meaning is understood. The anchor, for example, is similar to the Egyptian symbol of life (like the letter "T" with a small circle on top) deliberately combining a pagan idea with a Christian idea. The anchor may also combine a cross with a cresent. In Christian terms the symbolism represents the cross borne by Mary, who is symbolized by the crescent moon. The "Latin cross" (crux ordinaria) has from very early times also been called "God’s mark) with the four spaces representing the four seasons of the year.
