Talk:Religious symbol

This seems to be quite an incomplete page of religious symbols. In fact, I expected more. I'm sure there are many religions not included on here including Wicca, a valid and respectful religion steeped in tradition, ritual and spirituality.

Would anyone care to add Wiccan symbols to this page?

As well, I notice the ancient swastika is missing from the Buddhist section (although I can see it in the Hindu category). Understandably, this symbol is currently one perceived to mean hatred in modern times. But it's intended and historically meaning is different. The name is derived from the sanskrit word for "well-being."

Just a couple notes - thanks. -- 12:02, 15 September 2007

Yes, this page is incomplete, and makes no claims to completeness. It includes what those who have happened to work on the page have happened to be interested in, among the images which happened to be available on Wikimedia commons at the time. User:Nyo and others have been uploading a lot of neopagan symbols relatively recently, but the Religious symbols gallery page doesn't yet reflect that. AnonMoos 14:27, 15 September 2007 (UTC)


I noticed that the order of religions in the mixed image that is used as a wikipedia icon does not seem to conform to any real order...I suggest that the image be made to display the icons in order of population. 20:01, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Not sure exactly which image you mean; you should probably raise the issue on the talk page for that specific image... AnonMoos
