Random information on the term “Greek cross”:

The cross is a basic design of two intersecting lines (X) used from pre-historic times. Its use was enormously expanded as the Christian cross, from about the 6th century, deriving from a T-shape representing the gibbet (stauros, crux) of the crucifixion of Jesus in use from at least the 2nd century.From the 11th century, and increasingly during the age of the Crusades, a variety of forms of cross symbols were developed for the purpose of the emerging system of heraldry, which appeared in western Europe in about 1200.The cross was displayed on banners and flags from the medieval period and became common in modern times on numerous national flags.

Heraldry emerged in western Europe at the start of the 13th century out of earlier traditions.The Christian cross is one of the earliest and most widespread heraldic charges, dating back to the field signs used in the First Crusade, and used to distinguish the various noble crusaders from at least the Second Crusade. Some pre-Christian usages appear in heraldry, such as the Fylfot.

Random information on the term “TAU”:

Tau is a village in Strand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The village is located on the shore of the Horgefjorden, a branch of the main Boknafjorden. The 2.11-square-kilometre (520-acre) village has a population (2015) of 3,158 which gives the village a population density of 1,497 inhabitants per square kilometre (3,880/sq mi).[1][3] Strand Church is located in the village.

The village lies along the Norwegian National Road 13 highway, southwest of the small villages of Fiskå and Holta and northwest of the town of Jørpeland. There is currently a ferry service from Tau to the city of Stavanger, across the fjord, but this service is scheduled to end in 2019 when the new Ryfast tunnel will open for use.[3]

The name might come from the Old Norse word taufr which means ‘witchcraft’, since there was an ancient sacrificial field here in the Iron age.

Comrod Communications is the largest employer in Tau, mainly manufacturing antennaes for military use. Electrocompaniet is also based here. The factory Tau Mølle AS is located in Tau, producing puffed oats. The factory is located in a white mill that was used to brew the Norwegian beer known as “Tou”.
