    The Celtic cross is an iconic symbol of ancient Ireland. Legend has it that St Patrick saw a pagan standing stone imprinted with a circle, the symbol of the moon goddess. He is said to have blessed the stone, marking it with a Latin cross, thus creating the first Celtic cross. Ancient stone versions of this Celtic symbol are dotted all over the Irish countryside.
