That's a Jerusalem Cross.

Historical Origin of the Jerusalem Cross ​The Jerusalem cross consists of a large center cross with four smaller Greek crosses (a cross with four equal arms, similar to a plus sign) in each quadrant. Also known as the Crusader cross, the Jerusalem cross dates back to the 11th and 12th century when the Crusaders captured Jerusalem in 1099, establishing Christianity in the area. (At that time, Muslim forces controlled the area). One of the leaders of the Crusades, Godfrey de Bouillon, was the first to use the Jerusalem Cross as a distinct symbol of the new Crusader state, known as the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. De Bouillon believed that the cross symbolized Jesus Christ and the city of Jerusalem which is the root of Christianity.

Even after the overthrow of the Crusader state in 1291, the cross remained a symbol of Jerusalem for Christians and became the emblem of the esteemed Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. Today, the Jerusalem cross remains the emblem of the Order, and is still the symbol of all those who work to preserve Christianity in Jerusalem.

High Polish Jerusalem Cross Pendant with Chain ​What Does the Jerusalem Cross Symbolize? ​The Jerusalem cross is believed to represent several things. Historians note that the four crosses surrounding the large center cross represent the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The four crosses also are believed to represent the four corners of the earth, in which Jesus desired His word to be proclaimed by His disciples. The large cross symbolizes Christ.

Other historians believe that the five crosses together symbolize the five wounds Jesus suffered on the cross. The four small crosses represent the four wounds of Jesus’ hands and feet, while the large cross signifies Jesus’ pierced heart.

A 33rd degree York Right Freemason is a Knight Templar.

[–] 15413381? 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That's not true. 33rd degree Mason is Scottish Rite. Knights Templar is the York Rite. 2 separate branches, and to be a 33rd degree, you have to be nominated. 32nd degree is the highest degree most following the Scottish Rite path achieve.

No, 33 degree is Scottish Rite. I know because I'm a 32 degree. York Rite goes to 7. I am also a Knights Templar but the cross is a Jerusalem Cross and it can even be a Catholic cross.

York rite doesnt have 33 degrees.

The Kennedys? There were only two who held political office that were worth anything - Jack and Bobby. Until the Kennedys produce another Jack or Bobby, I'm good with them not being seen. Caroline is smart enough to stay out of politics. Joe III is a moron. Chris is better at business than politics. Ted Jr. uh no.

Caroline is dumb as a brick politically and doesn’t appear to hold any of the core political beliefs of her father so maybe she really is just plain dumb. Just had a lot of help getting good grades in law school. She actively supported Obama like her Uncle Ted and is the author of a NY Times op-ed about Obama, “A President Like My Father.” She has also donated in the past to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign.
