Lots of people have Celtic, tribal or religious tattoos these days.

But that’s not what Page’s tattoo is all about.

In this case, the Celtic cross — a square cross overlaying a circle — is the symbol of the neo-Nazi White Power movement and the official logo of Stormfront, the online community for political racists.

We know that’s likely the true meaning of the Page’s cross because he has the number 14 tattooed in the middle of it. According to the United Methodist Church’s compilation of hate symbols, and the Anti-Defamation League, in fascist culture, “14” stands for 14 words in a quote from the late white supremacist David Lane:

“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

Here’s the Stormfront/White Power logo:
