This symbol although it can be used so, is generally not solely a Christian symbol as other crosses are. It is most often used to represent and pay tribute to or in remembrance of those who have lost their lives in the service to their country. Often used for veteran headstones. Shown here sandblasted into our high quality solid G633 Gray Granite and then enhanced by the addition of a black lithichrome stone paint. A great choice to pay tribute to your favorite hero.
