The upside-down cross, also called the inverted cross, St. Peter's cross, is a symbol with a long history. It is said that when St. Peter was martyred in Rome, he pleaded the executioner to crucify him upside down. He believed that the Savior Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sake of all living beings, and that he did not deserve to die like Jesus. This is the origin of the upside-down cross, and it has thus become a symbol of humility.
There are also some claims that the upside down cross is a symbol of Satan. Because according to the legend, the archangel Lucifer (the predecessor of Satan) led a group of angels to rebel against God, was expelled by God, and was branded with the mark of the upside down cross when he fell, from then on the cross became a symbol of betraying God and following Satan.
In Satanic rituals, the reverse cross and inverted pentagram are considered to be secret symbols with powerful magical powers.
