Grail Cross (Indiana Jones)

This emblem, best known as the “grail cross,” is not a genuine religious or historical symbol, but I receive so many questions relating to the symbol that it is included here. This emblem appears in the movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” as the emblem of “Brotherhood of the Cruciform* Sword,” the fictional secret society who serve as Guardians of the Holy Grail in the movie.

The design is a Latin cross with an overlaid “chalice” shape.

*cross-shaped

It looks like a modified menorah.
