Globus cruciger & Sovereign's Orb
The globus cruciger (Latin) is an orb (globus) topped with a cross (cruciger), a Christian symbol of authority used throughout the Middle Ages on coins, iconography and royal regalia. It symbolises God's (the cross) dominion over the world (the orb), held under the protection and dominion of an earthly ruler, or sometimes celestial being.
