What does the Maltese Cross stand for?

User Avatar
The Maltese cross originally from the Knights of St John of Jerusalem ( the Knight Hospitalers)who used the Christian cross as a badge on their shields was adopted by the St. John Ambulance Brigade of today and also the Fire Service due to their object of service. It became known as the Maltese Cross because the Knights were given premission to settle in Malta and it is now the emblem of that country in the Mediterranean sea. B: The eight points of the Maltese cross symbolise the eight beatitudes of Christ's Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5.3-10): The poor in spirit, They who mourn, They who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, the meek, the peacemakers, they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, the pure in heart and the mercifu. The Maltese Cross is also interpreted as a symbol of the eight chivalric virtues: Observation, Tact, Resource, Dexterity, Sympathy, Perseverance, Discrimination, Explicitness Another theory considers the eight points of the Maltese Cross a symbol for the eight langues of the Order of Malta: Provence, Auvergne, France, Aragon, Italy, Germany, England, Castilia What is known as the Maltese Cross was originally the symbol of Amalfi, a small Italian republic of the 11th century The cross of Saint Florian, used by firefighters is often confused with the Maltese cross; although it may have eight or more points, it also has large curved arcs between the points. C: According to the Princeton dictionary, Maltese Cross has 2 meanings: 1. A cross with arrow shaped arms 2. A Eurasian garden

Napoleon takes Malta without a fight in this year and abolishes the Inquisition?

User Avatar
1798 ? IMPROVEMENT Napoleon landed on and took Malta on June 10, 1798, overwhelming the weak resistance of its garrison of 1.200 men. Then, during the following 5 days he reshaped every aspect of the way of life of the island. The Order of the Knights of St. John was abolished and all its members, with exception of those who agreed to join the French Army, were deported. Furthermore he set up the guidelines of a new Constitution, reformed the island's economy and created a new system of public education. The treasures of the Order were confiscated and about 7 millions of francs were destined to fill up the coffer of Napoleon's expeditionary force.

The language is Maltese, and actually 'hello' is used most of the time rather than anything else. You can say 'Bongu' [Bon-ju] though which is the proper Maltese word. The language is generally said to be made up of Gharab, Italian and English.
