Outlined Latin Cross ✟


Symbol Meaning

The Latin cross U+271F is drawn with black lines and complemented with a dark frame on the outline. The outer part of the shape is placed a bit further that the inner, which creates the effect of lighting up the symbol. The icon looks three-dimensional.

The icon depicts a classic Latin cross, with its vertical part being slightly larger than the horizontal one. It is a symbol of Catholic and Protestant churches. Outlined Latin cross may be used instead of a simple typographic one. For example, to mark places of worship on a map, the date of death, as well to embellish religious texts.

The symbol “Outlined Latin Cross” is included in the “Crosses” subblock of the “Dingbats” block and was approved as part of Unicode version 1.1 in 1993.
