Also known as a Saltire, an X Shaped Cross or in BDSM Terms, a Spanking Cross, the St. Andrew's Cross has been around for many generations. As the story goes, when Saint Andrew, (one of Jesus Christ's 12 apostles), was sentenced to crucifixion by the Romans in A.D. 60, it is said that he believed himself unworthy to be crucified on a cross like that of Jesus and so it was arranged that he would be crucified on a diagonal cross, also known as a saltire. The saltire later became known as the symbol of St Andrew and thus, the St. Andrews Cross. Around the year A.D 1000 when the nation of Scotland officially adopted St. Andrew as their patron saint, his symbol was also represented on their flag.
