IRON CROSS:
The Iron Cross is closely associated to Germany since here it represents the highest military commendation. It was founded by emperor Friedrich Wilhelm III. of Prussia in 1813 during the war agains Napoleon and consists of silver rimmed iron. It was awarded in all later wars up to Worldwar 1. As opposed to the swastika the iron cross was never removed from the german iconography.

MEANING Templar / Knights Cross:
The "Templar's Cross" (also "paw cross" or "lily cross") was only worn by the elite of the templar knights. The tips of the cross (paws) stood for the connection of intellectual power to the bravery of the knights through the cross of christ.

At it's founding the "Knights Templar" (also called Templars - approx. 1118-1312) was (after the Maltese Fraternity) the second clerical fraternity of knights to follow the crusades. It's full name is "Poor Knighthood Christi of the Solomonian Temple" (Pauperes commilitones Christi templique Salomonici Hierosalemitanis). The fraternity united the ideals of noble knighthood with those of the monks, two classes which until then were separated strictly. The name "Poor Knighthood Christi of the Solomonian Temple" comes from the circumstance that King Balduin offered one wing of his palace (todays Al-Aqsa-Mosque, before Basilica St. Mary on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem) as quarters. This palace was errected at the foundation of the earlier Solomon's Temple.
The "Paw's Cross" or "Templa's Cross" in red color on white background was the emblem of the Templars and appeared also on the black and white flag of the Templars (also called "Beauceant"). Originally the red cross on white background was reserved for the crusaders. The patron of the "Knights Templar" in it's founding times, Bernhard of Clairvaux, convinced the pope to give the Templars the right to wear the crusaders cross with the argument, this fraternity was on a constant crusade.
