Mighty Men Tartan

                                                                  EXPLANATION OF THE COLOURS

All the colours used in this design was taken from scripture.

It starts with Jesus`s suffering on the cross and then follows into

the commitment/promise He made to us.

 

The colours from the center of the cross outwards are explained as follows:


WHITE

The White Cross is the everlasting symbol of Christianity.

It represents Christ Personified, for he died on that cross for YOU!

Daniel 12:10   "We shall be purified, made white"
