I could be wrong Stan, but I would suspect that the cross and/or Jesus on the cross are primary Christian symbols. Of course there are many others.
The underlying point here is that for a "Christian" nation, the US is one of the bloodiest and most militaristic nations on earth. That doesn't seem very Christ-like to me.
One of the few exceptions that come to mind was the recent slaughter of a school of little Amish girls and the adamant response of their elders.

Peace loving as you are, your disdain and intolerance seems a bit out of place here. But then again, I suppose it is a sign of superior intelligence.
