The Maltese Cross and its
Malta by the Knights of St. John of
Jerusalem upon taking possession of the islands in 1530, the Maltese Cross has
become an intrinsic part of Malta’s culture and heritage, as well as a
much-cherished symbol by the Maltese.
The Knights of St. John of
Jerusalem, now commonly known as the Knights of Malta, can trace their origin
to a group of monks attached to a hospice built in the Holy Lands to aid
pilgrims. Over time, the monks started offering armed escort to travelers as they passed through perilous Syrian
territory. Following the success of the First Crusade, the Hospitallers evolved
into a military order.
The Maltese Cross
formally adopted by the Knights Hospitallers of St. John in 1126, stylistically
owes its origins to the crosses used in the crusades, when it was identified as
the symbol of the “Christian warrior”: Its eight points denote the eight
obligations or aspirations of the knights, namely “to live in truth, have
faith, repent one’s sins, give proof of humility, love justice, be merciful, be
sincere and wholehearted, and to endure persecution”. With time, the eight
points also came to represent the eight “langues” (literally “tongues”, but in
effect national groupings) of the noblemen who were admitted to the famed
order, namely those of Auvergne, Provence, France, Aragon, Castille and
Portugal, Italy, Baviere (Germany), and England (with Scotland and Ireland). The
Maltese cross remains the symbol of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
