Product Description

Honor any firefighter with this cast iron plaque featuring St. Florian's cross!

  • Accented with classic fire fighting images - Fire Engine, Ladder, Fire Hydrant, Pike Pole, Axe, and Fireman Hat.

  • The St. Florian's cross is a widely used symbol of firefighting, especially in the United States.  It is often confused with the Maltese cross, which is a sharp eight-pointed cross, whereas the St. Florian's has rounded arcs between the four points.

  • The use of St. Florian's symbol derives from the traditional belief that the saint himself was involved in firefighting.  He is also the patron saint of Austria, firefighters, chimney sweeps, soap makers, and brewers. He is invoked against fires, floods, lightning, and the pains of purgatory.  His veneration has been particularly intense since 1528, when a fire burned the neighborhood around a St. Florian's Church in Krakow without destroying the church.

  • Decorative cast iron plaque has a rust finish, measures 8.25"high x 7.5" wide x 3/8" deep, and has a loop at the top for easy hanging.  Use indoor or outdoor.
  • Makes a thoughtful and unique gift for a fireman, firewoman, or their family!  Pair with our Firefighter Cross!
