Hi there

I work quite a lot with liturgy books and liturgical text. Is there somewhere the two symbols showed in the attached photo?

Is there a way to insert that symbol if I would find it on the internet?

The Maltese Cross ✠ is Unicode character U+2720. The symbol ✙ is an Outlined Greek Cross (Unicode U+2719).

No. You can't insert images into text at the moment.

Hi @Curious7 This might not be any use to you, but here goes anyway.  I did a little digging on my Mac and found several instances on both characters.  And yes, they can be used directly in Publisher.

  • Menlo appears to be an Apple font, and is therefore unlikely to be available on Windows machines (you've not said what you're working on).
  • However, Meiryo and MS Gothic both seem to be Microsoft fonts.  I'd guess I've got them by having Office 365 installed.
  • Zapf Dingbats is probably Apple only (it been installed on Macs since about the stone age), but might be available more widely.

Once I'd done my little bit of research to establish their existence, the layout below was produced entirely in Publisher.  (The surrounding typeface in the samples below could, of course, have been anything I wanted.  But I just left the entire paragraphs set in the same font that has the instances of your crosses.)
