A Complete Guide to Illuminati Symbols, Signs, and Meanings

List of Illuminati Symbols and Meanings


All-Seeing Eye on a Pyramid

The combination of the All-Seeing Eye floating in a capstone over a 13-step unfinished pyramid is the most popular Illuminati symbols and by far the most recognizable symbol of the Illuminati.

The eye represents the Illuminati ruling from their position on the capstone of the pyramid. They are very few at the top while we are many at the bottom.

The all-seeing eye on the pyramid was added to the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States and finally adopted by Congress in 1782. In 1935, President and 33rd degree Freemason, Franklin Roosevelt added the front and back of the Seal to the one dollar bill.

See more about the Illuminati symbol, Pyramid and All-Seeing Eye.

All-Seeing Eye

The All-Seeing Eye floating is representative of the Illuminati seeing themselves as gods, and being able to see and watch everything that we do. They are rapidly approaching their goals thanks to quickly advancing technology.

The eye is usually a left one, such as on the US dollar bill. Some illuminati symbologists speculate that it might me the eye of Saturn while others suggest that it is the Eye of Horus. The all-seeing eye was one of the first symbols added to the Great Seal as we can see from a 1776 sketch found in Thomas Jefferson’s papers.

See All-Seeing Eye.


The Owl represents wisdom. The Illuminati see themselves as the only ones wise enough to rule the planet. The symbol of Minerva is used by the elite Bohemian Grove and was used by the Minervals of the Bavarian Illuminati.

See Owl.


Black Sun, Swastika, Rising Sun, Morning Star

The sun, especially a rising sun, typically represents Lucifer the Morning Star, Lucifer the Bringer of Dawn.

The Theosophical Society, OTO, Rosicrucians, and Freemasons commonly use the sun in their symbols. The Bavarian Illuminati used the point within a circle as its symbol which modern Masons still use today. The swastika is a sun symbol representing the procession of the sun.

See Sun.



Six hundred threescore and six is the Number of the Beast as described in Revelation 13. The Illuminati make frequent use of the numbers as homage to their master, Satan.

See 666.

This symbol can also be represented using a hand sign. See Triple Six.


Eternal Flame

Fire or flames are the primary symbols used to represent Lucifer, the “bringer of light”. The eternal flame is representative of the Illuminati’s immortality. They see their organization as eternal and impossible to destroy. This symbol is prominent on Standard Oil’s logo, the Statue of Liberty, and the Columbia Pictures logo.

See Fire.


The name Baphomet first appeared as a pagan idol in the trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar. Eliphas Lévi’s depiction of the goat-headed idol was used by occultists to depict the devil in the Rider-Waite tarot cards.

See Baphomet.


The pyramid represents the command structure of the Illuminati with very few people commanding from the capstone. The 13-step pyramid found on the US dollar bill represents the 13 families of the Illuminati.

See Pyramid.

This symbol can also be represented using a hand sign. See Pyramid Sign, Inverted Pyramid, Roc Sign, and Merkel-Raute.

Serpents, Dragons, Reptiles

Snakes usually represent temptation as represented in the Garden of Eden. The snake traditionally imparts forbidden knowledge which is used as a lure b the Illuminati. Serpents are seen in the Ouroboros and caduceus symbols.

See Snake and dragon.


The serpent swallowing its own tale represents infinity. The symbol reinforces the Illuminati’s perception that they are immortal and eternal like gods.

See Ouroboros.


Double-Headed Eagle, Phoenix
