Golden cross

Hmm. I was looking at the cruciform windows at church today thinking I didn't really care for the proportions. It got me thinking, I wonder what a cross would look like based on the Golden Rectangle? But where do you set the crossbar? Line AB would be logical, but it could also be at a line x height from the top. I tend to favor long and thin or absolutely square crosses.

This article says most Christian crosses conform to the Golden Ratio. That doesn't surprise me, that someone would have thought of it before me. But, if that's true, then I must not like such Golden Crosses, because I don't tend to like the proportions of most crosses.
