Summary

A "Borromean cross", which contains four Borromean rings configurations arranged in a cross shape. This means that no two circles are directly interlinked, and cutting the central loop frees the other four circles.

This could be interpreted as a Christian symbol, since it combines the cross with the Borromean rings (often used as a symbol of the Christian Trinity). However, a similar design (possibly not Borromeanly-linked) may be occasionally used as a neo-pagan "five worlds" symbol...

For another image on the "Borromean rings + cross" theme, see File:Cross-Trinity-Borromean-interlinked.svg .

For other Trinity crosses, see Image:Cross-Bottony-Heraldry.svg , Image:Triquetra-Cross.png , Image:Celtic-Cross-Vodicka-decorative-triquetras-red.svg , and perhaps Image:Cross-Flory-Heraldry.svg .

For an indefinitely extended "Borromean chain-mail" pattern, see Image:Borromean-chainmail-tile.png .
