Two ancient Christian symbols combined in one design to represent the Christian faith. Each has its own special meaning. The fish tells us that Jesus Christ is God's Son, our Saviour. The cross reminds us of Christ's atoning sacrifice.
Jesus told the disciples to be fishers of men, winning souls to Jesus. The horizontal bar represents our physical experiences, whereas the vertical bar represents our understanding derived from those experiences. Fish represents spiritual food or knowledge.
The cross: According to the Bible, Jesus was crucified. Crucifixion at that time meant the hanging of a body on the combination of a horizontal beam for the arms to be stretched across, and a vertical beam for the trunk of the body to be aligned with. The cross helps Christians remember the sacrifice that Christ made. The fish: The fish is a little harder. The name of the fish is 'ICHTHUS' because of the letters IXOYE that appear within it. However, those letters were added much later than when the fish was first used. According to folklore, Christians in the early centuries, during time of persecutions, would draw fish in the ground to point the way to their church meetings. Then a follower of Christ could find the meeting by following the fish drawings.
