I was looking for a green dragon on Amazon and this caught my eye.

My question is, has anyone here ever used a cross in their practice? And would it be appropriate to incorporate as a pagan?
A cross is a predominantly Christian symbol, as we all know, but I’ve read that the cross has been used long before it came to be associated with the death of Jesus.
Historians have said that the “cross” Jesus was crucified on may have actually been in the shape of an uppercase T or even just a stake or pole (I believe in the Greek version of the Bible, it’s written he died on a stauros, which means stake or pole), since trees would have been scarce in and around Jerusalem.
I did some research on Google and couldn’t find much information on pagan crosses. Just that it had been used as a symbol of fertility.
There is the witch’s knot, which looks like a cross.
Aside from that, does anyone know of any other historical pagan uses of the cross?
