Geneva Cross: A red cross on a white background, which by an international convention is recognised as a sign of the military medical and hospital service all over the world. The unauthorized use of the Geneva cross in any form is punishable in time of peace, and its misuse in time of war is held to place the misuser outside the pale of civilisation.  See Red Cross.
