In the United Kingdom, the Maltese Cross is the symbol used by Rifle Regiments, and has been incorporated into the badges of virtually all rifle units, including the cap badge of the Bermuda Regiment, officers cross belt of the Gurkha Rifles and now amalgamated, The Royal Green Jackets.
The first postmark employed for the cancellation of the then new postage stamps in the 1840s was the shape of a Maltese cross and named accordingly.
The Maltese cross also forms the basis for the design of the Order of the Bath and the Royal Victorian Order.
The Maltese cross appears on the coat of arms of the London Borough of Hackney.
The Maltese cross appears on the coat of arms of Saint John, one of the parishes of Jersey.
The Maltese cross appears on the shirts of St Mark’s FC (West Gorton) the forebears of Manchester City Football Club.
The Maltese cross is the insignia of Methodist College Belfast and it appears on the blazers of the Sixth Form pupils as its crest.
The Maltese cross is also the symbol of Neath Rugby Football Club.
It is the symbol of the Royal Shrewsbury School Boat Club, displayed on the oars and uniform of the 1st VIII.
It is a symbol used by the ATOC on rail tickets which allow travel on the London Underground between London Rail Terminals (e.g., between Euston and Victoria), when passengers are travelling via London. Alternatively, where the destination of the ticket is a London Travelcard Zone, the inclusion of the cross allows a passenger to undertake one single or return journey to any station within that Zone from the London Terminal station at which they arrived.
It is used by the St John Ambulance organisation as their main form of identification.
The Cross is also one of the symbols of Rosslyn Park FC, a rugby club in London, England.
