A cross inside a crown.
Both the cross and the crown are important symbols in Christendom. The cross is the most significant symbol of Christianity because it recalls the death of Jesus Christ who was crucified for the sins of the world (Colossians 1:15-20).
The crown is a symbol for divine honor, glory, and victory. The crown can also symbolize the crown that Jesus Christ bestows on all who believe in Him (2 Timothy 4:8). The crown has several names in Scripture such as the crown of life (James 1:12; Revelation 2:10), the crown of glory (1 Peter 5:4), and the crown of righteousness (2 Timothy 4:8).
When the cross and the crown are placed together, they symbolize Jesus who willingly died on the cross to defeat sin, death and the devil; and who gives the crown of eternal life to all who believe in Him.
