The Maltese Cross shape has been adopted by many organizations worldwide, especially first-responder groups, who embody “knightly” (courageous) qualities. Specifically in the United States, the Maltese Cross has been adopted as the symbol for our firefighting force. This makes the Maltese Cross the logical shape for firefighter awards and gifts. At Hit Trophy, we have several items that feature this special symbol. For example, our Maltese Cross Clock (AT36) features a handsome Maltese Cross-shaped timepiece mounted on a walnut wood plaque. In contrast, our Crystal Maltese Cross (CRY468) is a free-standing, more contemporary, clear crystal option. Whether you choose a Maltese Cross gift made of crystal, acrylic, or traditional wood, the recipient will appreciate the symbolism and significance of the gift.
