St. Peter's Cross (formal name: Petrine Cross)
Peter is believed to have been crucified upside down at his own request, as he did not feel worthy to die the same way as Jesus and he
requested that his cross be inverted at the point of crucifixion. Therefore many use this cross as a symbol of humility. Saint Peter
was martyred between 54-68 AD. His symbol includes the keys to the kingdom of heaven, entrusted to him by Christ who told him,
'I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven.' (Gospel of Matthew Chapter 16 verse 19. NRSV)
