The Cross of Santiago
The cross of Santiago (St. James) is a cross with flourished arms, often surmounting a scallop shell. It was the emblem of the 12th-century Spanish military Order of Santiago, named after St. James the Greater. The scallop shell, found on beaches near the shrine of Santiago de Compostela, is both a pilgrim badge and a symbol of Baptism.
