Chi Rho Buckler Patch - Green and Gold
For several years, Guardian Defense Incorporated has been adding ancient symbols into the designs of our patch line. From multiple cross designs, to the Fleur-De-Lis, we have offered Guardian variants of ancient symbols that are packed with both history and meaning.
Several months ago, GDI began a conversation with a new patch manufacturer, in the hopes of increasing the quality of the products we offer. As we grew comfortable that we could upgrade quality, the next question for us became “what’s the first patch we offer in our new format?” The only answer was the Chi Rho.
The Chi Rho (/ˈkaɪ ˈroʊ/) is one of the earliest forms of christogram, formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters—chi and rho (ΧΡ)—of the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (Christ) in such a way that the vertical stroke of the rho intersects the center of the chi. One of the oldest symbols in the Christian Faith, it was used extensively by Roman Emperors and military units.
The ChiRho Buckler is 3.75” wide. Velcro backed, these patches are created with immaculate detail and impeccable quality.
