    Hello everyone! Can anyone tell me what is the name/meaning of this symbol or where can I find a software able to search for it on the web pls ?
    For context: Search Mezzosangue - Sete on youtube. You can find the symbol on the coat of the masons at the beginning of the song. It must be related to esoterism and to a good faction/positive meaning, presumably having to do with the ideals of the French revolution and the emancipation of the human being (like the Order of Assassins from A'sC for ex)

    Any ideas for default?

    Also there's a version that I saw elsewhere, but I can't seem to find a picture now (named Alt 1)
    Where cross 1 (left)& 3 (right)were the right way up but cross 2(center) remained upside down...

    Saw yet an alternate version similar to alt 1 where it simply had a small love heart beside it to the right ?

    Blah.

    This is a symbol I created as a kind of signature sigil. If I was into graffiti, it wouldd be my tag I guess. I'm just curious if it already exists in some alphabet, or has some pre-existing meaning.

      The four letters in the middle are the Hebrew letters for YHWH, or one of the names of God. These four letters are called the tetragrammaton, which is also the name of a protection symbol which includes the aforementioned four letters. This might be a variation of a tetragrammaton symbol.

      Those are parentheses. They basically close off a section in math, and they use the PEMDAS (Order of Operations - Must use in order) protocol (or multiply two numbers) such as:
      Ex:
      3(2+3) + 8(2-1) =
      (3 x 5) + (8 x 1) =
      15 + 8 = 23
      Parentheses (Answer what's in the parentheses first)
      Exponents (Do the math for the exponents)
      Multiplication (Multiply any numbers or variables)
      Division (Divide any numbers or variables)
      Addition (Add any numbers or variables)
      Subtraction (Subtract any numbers or variables)

    I dont have a pic but let me try my best to describe it for you guys. It has multiple forms that it comes on. Like a fifty cent piece. And on one side it has like a sheild with a crest or a horse with one leg bent on the front legs bent. A rider with sword or joust at half mast . oh ya and a serpent coming out of the water and the horse looks to be about to trample it with one of its front legs.and on the back it says " you are the key to the light"!.
