    Having been asked about the symbolism depicted in my photographs I will attempt an answer. This cross is etched into the paving stones of the newly erected monument to Greece on the Grounds of The Holy Trinity Church in the North Common Village. The Chi-Rho is one of the oldest Christian symbols as the X and P are the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ. For the symbolism of a sea gull sitting atop a gold cross I can only guess. It probably has to do with the fact that Greeks are a seafaring people.
