The Insignia of The Hochmeister of The Teutonic Order

The arms of the Order were originally Argent a cross sable.
The emblem of the Order was a cross potent sable, thereon a
cross flory or, thereon an escutcheon of the Empire. The
cross sable was supposedly granted by the Emperor Henry VI,
the cross or by the King of Jerusalem John, the fleurs-de-
lys by Louis IX of France, and the escutcheon by Frederic
II Hohenstaufen. Originally, the Hochmeister quartered his
arms with those of the order, as did occasionally the
Deutschmeister and the Baillif of Brandenburg. The high
officers, baillifs, preceptors and commanders added the
chief of the order to their arms.

The Meaning of The Teutonic Cross

The Teutonic Cross, is comprised of four Tau
Crosses, this form of cross was assigned to
the knights of the Teutonic ( Germanic ) Order,
founded by Emperor Henry VI as a hospital order
in 1191, similar to the Templars and Hospitallers.
In heraldry, this cross is aptly named a Potent
Cross; potent meaning 'strong', and also an old
word for 'crutch' or 'support'.
