Cymraeg: Croes wedi ei chyfuno â chylch yw Croes Geltaidd. Mae'n symbol o Gristionogaeth Geltaidd, a cheir nifer ohonynt yn y gwledydd Celtaidd, rhai yn dyddio'n ôl i'r 7fed ganrif. Oherwydd ei siap pendrwm, mae llawer ohonynt wedi colli'r rhan uchaf dros y blynyddoedd e.e. Croes Eliseg.
English: The Celtic cross is a symbol that combines a cross with a ring surrounding the intersection. It belongs to a kind of crosses with a nimbus. In the Celtic Christian world it was combined with the Christian cross and this design was often used for high crosses – a free-standing cross made of stone and often richly decorated. With the Celtic Revival the shape, usually decorated with interlace and other motifs from Insular art, became popular for funerary monuments and other uses, and has remained so, spreading well beyond Great Britain and Ireland.
