John Hurt
V for Vendetta (2005)
John Hurt, as Adam Sutler, stands in front of the symbol of the Norsefire Party, a variant of the Patriarchal Cross, while a variant of the "Croix de Lorraine" appears on the podium. The film makers' intent, if there is one, is unclear. It would depend on whether they viewed the cross as a symbol of the masonic Knights Templar, the Free French resistance movement or the Catholic Vatican.
The word sutler, originally a verb meaning to do the dirty work, later referred to a person who followed an army or maintained a store on an army post to sell provisions to the soldiers.
