It's a symbol primarily associated with Christianity these days and in that context can be seen on buildings, signs, posters, monuments, and books, among other places, and is common in jewellery, but it long predates Christianity as a symbol of various other superstitions all over Europe and Asia, probably because it's a simple shape relatively easy to incise on or create from a variety of materials. It's a symbol associated with the Sumerian deity Tammuz, the Persian Mithras, and the little known Greek deity Attis, all of whom reportedly died and were resurrected.
