Amalfi Cross

This is a very beautiful metallic bookmark from a small island of Malta. I've been to Malta two times and I can say - I love this island (hmm, I think I love all ISLANDS I've visited:)).



The Maltese cross or Amalfi cross identified as the symbol of an order of Christian warriors known as the Knights Hospitaller or Knights of Malta and through them came to be identified with the Mediterranean island of Malta and is one of the National symbols of Malta.
