The so-called sun cross or "wheel cross", a cross inside a circle, is frequently found in the symbolism of prehistoric cultures, particularly during the Neolithic to Bronze Age periods.

These terms "sun cross" and "wheel cross" are modern and hint at speculative interpretations in the context of prehistoric religion. The actual significance of these symbols in the prehistoric period is not known. From their ubiquity and apparent importance, however, the symbols have been adopted in various schools of Neopaganism, esotericism and occultism. These symbols are also notoriously used by white supremacists and Nazis to represent their beliefs and ideologies.
