Why Blue Maltese

Post by Jim on Mon Apr 21, 2014 12:01 pm

I purchased a Jeep Wrangler back in 2005. It was something my father always wanted, but was unable to finagle before losing a battle with Heart Disease.
In 2005, I also began a battle with Heart Disease, and took the opportunity to get that Jeep. Now he rides with me in Spirit as I explore the deserts.
I know some people seem to be put off by my Maltese Cross I display on my windshield. I encourage those of you that think it may be a Nazi symbol, to do some research. You may want to start locally with the symbol we see displayed for our Firefighter hero's.  Yup! That's a Maltese Cross; Also referred to as an Iron Cross.
Here's a little summary of why I display that Maltese Cross on my Jeep. It's a symbol of service. In feudal times you might see the Crest of Saint John inside that Cross and blazoned upon a shield in battle. That would indicate the soldier was loyal to Saint John, and fought on his behalf. Today you are more likely to see Orange County Choppers inside that cross. That would indicate your devotion to the OCC boys.
If you've seen my Blue Maltese, you've noticed I don't have any family crest or preference referenced. My reasoning for this is simple. I offer my loyalty and services to anyone in need. I often come to the rescue of stranded desert enthusiast’s in the deserts. I've had my tow straps on Jeeps, Toyota's, Bronco's, and even motorhomes. The deserts can be deadly. We need to be vigilant out there.
The Maltese Cross –
The four arms of the Cross are for the four Cardinal Virtues –
Prudence, Temperance, Justice and Fortitude.
For the Eight Points:
To live in truth. To have faith. To be sincere. To give proof of humility.
To love justice. To be merciful. To endure persecution. To repent of sin.
