In fact the symbol now known as the Celtic cross has been found on stone petroglyphs and in bronze artifacts throughout Scandinavia, Estonia and Germany dating back to 1200 bce. The symbol was widely used symbol among sun worshiping Nordic and Celtic people, it symbolized the warmth and radiance of the sun with all it’s life giving properties.
