Description

The Templar Order of St. James of the Sword was born in the year 1175 in Spain with the double purpose to fight the Moors and to protect the pilgrims on their ways to the sanctuary of Compostella. The Order’s insignia, depicted on the standard borne by the knight, is formed by an elaborate red cross on a golden field. During the Reconquista, the knights of St James were one of the elite corps at disposal of the christian kings and the character here reproduced well give an impression of how one of them would appear between the end of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th century.
