The Northern Cross has symbolic meaning to Christians because every year before Christmas it sits upright on the horizon in the north-western sky for observers in northern latitudes.
In Greek mythology, Cygnus Constellation is associated with the story of Phaeton, son of the Sun-god Helios. Phaeton decided to go for a ride in his father’s chariot, lost control of it, and was thrown from the sky into the river Eridanus. His friend Cycnus, lamenting his death, kept plunging into the river to find him. The gods were moved by his efforts and transformed Cycnus into a swan. In another myth, Cygnus is associated with Zeus himself who seduced Leda in the guise of a swan.
