The Maltese Cross originated with a group of eleventh century knights who were serving in a Jerusalem hospital during the 11th and 12th centuries. They became known as the Order of Knights Hospitaller and later became the Knights of St. John. A white or silver cross on a dark background was adopted by these Knights, as they were also known for their charity toward the poor in setting up hospitals.
