Order of Christ Cross

The Order of Christ Cross is the emblem of the historical Order of Christ, (also called Christ's Knights Order) of Portugal. It has since become a generic Portuguese emblem, used in the sails of the Portuguese carracks during the Discoveries, by the Portuguese Air Force and on the flag of the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

It was also the symbol of the Movimento Nacional-Sindicalista, a fascist group of the early 1930s.
