Here's a painting I did in 2013.  It reminds me of a quote from Winston Churchill.  Although there are a multitude of historic references to the meaning of the Iron Cross, the intent of my painting is to symbolize the Teutonic Order using my bermanesque iconography in place of the typical shield insignia.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill
