Details: Commemoration of the Millennium.

The 2000th anniversary of the birth of Christ is marked by the use of a selection of the many different crosses used in heraldry. The large black cross is a Celtic cross and upon it are, at the top, a cross potent, on the left, a Maltese cross, and on the right, a cross formy or paty; beneath the star (which is the central feature to remind us that it is Christ's birth rather than His death that is being celebrated) is a patriarchal cross and beneath the arms of the Company is the cross, without any qualification, that we associate with England & St George. The design also includes a cross bottony, a cross patonce, a cross fourchy, a cross recercely, a cross-crosslet, a cross flory, a cross pommy and a cross moline.
