The Celtic Cross comes in many forms. Some are plain, while others are quite ornate. A very simple description of what the Celtic Cross looks like is a cross with a circle.

The Irish Celtic Cross has been a symbol of faith for centuries in Ireland. This is whether the belief is pagan, Christian or another religion. Originally crafted in stone, Celtic crosses predate Christianity. Also, in pagan times the circle of the cross represented the sun.
According to legend, St Patrick introduced to Celtic Cross in Ireland. He used it when he was converting the pagans in Ireland to Christianity. He combined the Christian cross with the pagan sun. This showed the newly converted followers the importance of the cross by linking it with the symbolism of the life-giving properties of the sun. However, others say that placing the cross on top of the circle represents Christ’s supremacy over the sun. The sun was highly worshiped by the pagans.
