The Creeperian Cross (also known as the Cross of Creeperopolis, Creeperian Spanish: Cruz de Creeperopólis or Cruz Creeperiano) is a heraldic cross and Christian cross variant consisting of a large cross potent surrounded by four smaller crosses, one in each quadrant. It is currently used as the emblem and coat of arms of Creeperopolis.

Origins and Modern Use

While the symbol of the five-fold cross appears to originate in the 7th century, its association with Creeperopolis dates to the first half of the 13th century.

The symbolism of the five-fold cross is variously given as the five wounds of Christ, Christ and the four evangelists, or Christ and the four quarters of the world.

The design of the coat of arms of Creeperopolis is traditionally attributed to Alfonso I himself.

It continues to be used on the flag, coat of arms, and many other symbols in Creeperopolis. It is also on the flag of the Creeperian Initiative and the flag and coat of arms of El Salvador.
