Anecdotes about the Basque crosses or “lauburu”
The origin of Basque crosses is so old that we have lost the meaning of this symbol, but several hypotheses exist. This solar symbol could represent the passing of time and the 4 seasons, or it would represent the 4 old vital elements (water, earth, air, fire).
This symbol is present in the Basque Country but also in Alsace.
This Basque cross is certainly linked to the swastika symbol used in the East to symbolize eternity.
