In Slovakia, a double cross on the back of the 2-euro coin
The euro has been in use since 2009 in Slovakia. The small Central European country didn't hesitate to pay tribute to the three great saints it has honored for centuries: Sts. Benedict, Cyril and Methodius. The trio is symbolized by a double-branched cross resting on the three highest peaks in the country, the mountains named Tatra, Fatras and Mátra. This cross, which is also found on the national flag, is of Byzantine origin.
