The Greek goddess Diana is depicted with a cross over her head in many paintings as was Bachuss the Greek God of wine. Different styles of crosses were used in Mexico centuries before the Spaniards invaded South America. The Egyptians and the Hindus both used the cross as a symbol hundreds of years before Christ.
The use of a cross by Christians did not actually start until the age of Constantine 300 years after Christ. Ironically its pretty clear that they borrowed it from the Pagans.
