History behind the shape of these crosses.
Commonly referred to as the Cross of Lazarus is a cross with the ends of the arms bottony (or botonny, i.e. "furnished with knobs or buttons"), i.e. shaped like a trefoil—and so it is sometimes called a cross trefly. When combined with a green Maltese cross, it forms the insignia of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus.
