The Macedonian cross (Macedonian: македонски крст), also known as the Veljuški cross (mkd. Veljuški krst; or Veljusa cross, mkd. The cross of Veljusa), is a variation of the Christian cross and is associated with Christianity among Macedonians . This cross is also one of the symbols of the Macedonian Orthodox Church. The Macedonian cross is in fact presented in the form of a magnificent double braid in the shape of an ornamental ornament that resembles a cross. Since the cross is one of the symbols of the Macedonian Orthodox Church – the archbishopric of Ohrid, it was presented 33 times on the edge of the coat of arms of this church.
