A little bit of history ...
The origins of the cross are traced back to the Knights of Malta. The Knights of St. John or Knights Hospitaller (as they're also known) ruled over Malta for centuries and fought many epic battles.
In one incident, the Knights' courage and bravery were witnessed first hand by the Turkish soldiers when they lost some 2,500 men when they assaulted one of Malta's cities. This was in just one assault!
