Thank you.

an old post from our dear friend Doc explains the history of this symbol: The Maltese Cross.

Thank you tick-talk for the link. I have just read through it and it appears to make sense using a logo based on an integral part of the movement. I will sleep well tonight.
I have another theory...

The history of Geneva reveals significant religious influence so its hard not to acknowledge the Maltese Cross first gained prominence centuries before its adoption by the Manufacture in 1880 as a religious symbol with military overtones.  Such symbolism would have appealed to the customers that V&C were seeking to attract.  I'm just peeking into this aspect and hope to have a story to tell in the future.
