Celtic Cross (Irish: cros Cheilteach, Scottish Gaelic: crois Cheilteach, Manx: crosh Cheltiagh, Welsh: croes Geltaidd, Cornish: krows keltek, Breton: kroaz geltek) is a symbol
that combines a cross with a ring surrounding the intersection;
the cross’ stem being longer than the other threes’ intersection.
celticcrossIt belongs to a wider group of crosses with a nimbus.
The Celtic Christians combined the Christian crosswith the nimbus
to create high crosses  – a free-standing cross made of stone
which was often richly decorated.
The Celtic Revivalshape, usually decorated with interlace
and other motifs from Insular art,
became popular for funerary monuments and other uses,
and has remained so, spreading well beyond Ireland.
