SCIENTOLOGY CROSS, a cross about three inches high and is of simple but effective design without lettering or other ornament. The model of the cross came from a very ancient Spanish mission in Arizona, a sand casting which was dug up by Ron. The cross is a regular Roman cross with four additional short points between the four long points, a true eight dynamic Scn cross; the sunburst cross. (Abil 14)

CROSS, the symbol of the cross has been widely used in symbolic tradition, and with many interpretations given to it. The many forms of the word “cross” itself, however, traditionally are said to derive from (come from) a basic root word meaning “light of the Great Fire.” The distinctive cross of the Church of Scientology is symbolic because of its eight points, of the eight dynamics. Above the shield of the Sea Org coat of arms, it not only symbolizes the Sea Org member’s devotion to the aims of the Church of Scientology, but also his commitment to the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics. The cross’s position above the shield also indicates that Sea Org is a religious fraternity within the formalized structure of the  Churches of Scientology. (FO 3350)
