What is the symbolism of the Celtic Cross?

The Celtic Cross is one of many forms of the Cross, and arose in Ireland and Scotland. The symbolism is quite simple. The Cross is a representation of the Cross on which Christ died. The ring which surrounds the upper part of the Cross represents the sun i.e. the Resurrection. Celtic Christians had a tremendous respect for Nature, and like many peoples, saw the sun as a life-giving force. The Celtic Christians continued the pagan tradition of inscribing stones, and Celtic crosses were usually inscribed with scenes from the life of Christ, with saints, or even animals with religious significance (e.g. cockerel).
