In Nordic countries, the sideways cross is referred to as the Nordic Cross, popularly found on the flags of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, originating in Denmark. Legend says that the flag was given to Denmark in 1219. During the battle of Lyndanisse, it was rumored that the flag fell from the sky. Many believe that the flag was a sign from God in favor of the Danish forces, who later won the battle. Wear this symbol of honor, patriotism and of course Christianity, with the Sideways Cross Bracelet; just the right piece to match with your everyday wardrobe and makes for a timeless accessory.


Many individuals look at the sideways cross as a symbol of Jesus achieving salvation of his people. When his work is finished, the cross had been laid down, and he no longer had to carry the weight of the cross. Some individuals believe that it symbolizes one’s choice to accept God and His teachings, while others believe it is a symbol of earth lying between Heaven and Hell, representing the struggle of humanity to live according to the word of God. Carry a spiritual yet chic piece with the Side Cross Necklace in Sterling Silver, a contemporary twist to the classic cross necklace.
