Top Ten Illuminati Symbols – The Illuminati loves taunting the Profane by putting their symbols in plain sight for all to see. Only the Illuminati insiders are privy to the symbols’ true meaning. Symbols of the Illuminati are present on our currencies, and are plastered all over our television, movies and newspapers.

No.1 The All-Seeing Eye

The All-Seeing Eye or the Eye of Providence is the preeminent symbol and most widely recognized symbol of the Illuminati.

all seeing eye2 Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

The All-Seeing Eye as seen on the United States one dollar note.

The All-Seeing Eye was added to the original design of the Great Seal of the United States in 1776 by Pierre Eugène Du Simitière and remained on the Seal with the addition of an unfinished pyramid (see Illuminati symbol #2) when it was finally adopted in 1782. In 1935 the Great Seal was added to the $1 dollar note, the most widely circulated note on the planet, by President and Freemason Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Links to the Illuminati: To conspiracy theorists, the all-seeing eye represents the Eye of Lucifer. The Eye can see all and oversees its minions which are represented by the individual bricks of the pyramid. The 13 steps of the pyramid represent the 13 Illuminati Bloodlines which collectively rule over the planet. The year 1776 represent the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati by Adam Weishaupt.

US Government: The Eye is a representation of God who favors the prosperity of the United States. It is positioned above an unfinished pyramid representing the future growth of the United States. The 13 steps of the pyramid represent the original thirteen states. The year 1776 represent the birth of the United States.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: There is no evidence that the Bavarian Illuminati used the eye in any of its rituals. However, they used the “point within a circle, circled dot, circumpunct, or circle with a point at its centre a (⊙) to represent the Order.

Links to Freemasonry: The Master Mason learns that the All Seeing Eye represents the Great Architect of the Universe (GAOTU) who watches and sees everything and will judge us according to our works.

The Freemasons also use the ⊙ symbol. In Arcana of Masonry (p. 188), Masonic Historian Albert Churchward writes:

“The point in the centre of a Circle is equal to the point at the tip of the Triangle, and this Glyph is equivalent to the Eye; the two are synonymous.”

Other secret societies: In the Order of the Golden Dawn the ⊙ represents Kether.

No.2 The Pyramid

The Illuminati Elite is represented by the capstone of the pyramid and the Profane by the stones.

pyramid Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

The pyramid represents the top-down command structure of the Illuminati with the Illuminati plutocrats at the top and the peons at the bottom.

Links to the Illuminati: In Illuminati conspiracy theories the presence of a pyramid usually represents the top-down command structure of the Illuminati rulers of the universe. The theory has become more mainstream following the rise of the Occupy Wall Street movement who refer to the rulers as the One Percent.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: The pyramid was featured prominently at Minerval Assemblies of the Bavarian Illuminati. A carpet was laid out on the room’s floor featuring a Pyramid flanked on either side by the letters D and P on each of its side. (Deo Proximo – God is near) There are stones scattered at the pyramid’s base. The unfinished pyramid signifies that the goals of the Most Serene Order of the Illuminati are still incomplete. By working together, the Illuminati is able to make great strides towards completing their task for the glory of the Grand Architect.

Links to Freemasonry: The George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Virginia is capped by a seven steps pyramid.
House of the Temple, the Headquarters for the Supreme Council of the southern jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite of Masonry is also capped by an unfinished pyramid.

No.5 The Pentagram

The Illuminati and the practice and promotion of black magic

pentagram Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

The Pentagram with Baphomet’s head at its center

Aka: Sigil of Baphomet, (two points up)

The name Baphomet first appeared as a pagan idol in the trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar
The pentagram was originally a protection charm against demons. The reversed pentagram came to have its own distinctive meaning as a sign of evil – especially after the publication of famed French occultist Lévi Éliphas publication of Transcendental Magic, its Doctrine and Ritual in 1854:

“A reversed pentagram, with two points projecting upwards, is a symbol of evil and attracts sinister forces because it overturns the proper order of things and demonstrates the triumph of matter over spirit. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns, a sign execrated by initiates.”

Links to the Illuminati: George Washington and Thomas Jefferson appointed French-born freemason Pierre Charles L’Enfant to design Washington D.C. A pentagram is clearly visible in the street layout leading many to speculate whether or not L’Enfant deliberately inserted Masonic symbols.

However, the pentagram is not complete. Rhode Island Avenue does not connect with Pennsylvania Avenue, leaving the pentagram incomplete. Freemasons often point to this as proof that the streets of Washington DC are not Masonic. If the masons are all powerful architects, why can’t they get a pentagram right? The answer might be found in the wrings of Illuminatus Johann Goethe (nom de guerre: Abaris) and famous author of Faust:

I must confess, my stepping o’er
Thy threshold a slight hindrance doth impede;
The wizard-foot doth me retain.

The pentagram thy peace doth mar?
To me, thou son of hell, explain,
How camest thou in, if this thine exit bar?
Could such a spirit aught ensnare?

Observe it well, it is not drawn with care,
One of the angles, that which points without,
Is, as thou seest, not quite closed.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: The Illuminati did not use the pentagram in its ceremonies.

Links to Freemasonry: The Order of the Eastern Star a female Masonic organization for wives and family of Freemasons uses the pentagram with two points up as its emblem.

No.6 666

The Illuminati, the number of the Beast and the Anti-Christ.

666 Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

Fear of the number 666 is called hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. There will be a test.

“Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
~Revelation 13: 18
New King James Version (NKJV)

Links to the Illuminati: The number of the Beast is associated with the Anti-Christ who would eventually take helm of the Illuminati as he brings forth the New World Order. The music industry is a prime recruiting ground for the Illuminati. Illuminated musicians incorporate Illuminati symbolism in their work as a nudge to their Illuminati handlers.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: Only deists and atheists could hope to reach the higher mystery degrees of the Illuminati. As such, they would have regarded Satan as a mythological figure.

Links to Freemasonry:

“Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!” ~Albert Pike. Moral and Dogma

No.7 Fire

The eternal flame is a powerful symbol of the Enlightenment.

The Statue of LIberty

Links to the Illuminati: Illuminati researcher Dr. Stan Monteith claims that the Statue of Liberty is the pagan goddess Semiramis, the whore of Babylon – a homewrecker and a harlot. She represents the destruction of the Old World Order and the creation of the New World Order.

Illuminati researcher Mark Dice claims that the Statue of Liberty is an Illuminati symbol. The statue’s radiant crown’s rays are a symbol of the sun or Enlightenment. The Enlightenment represents Lucifer, the torch bearer.

The Olympic Flame torch rally was first introduced by the Nazis for the 1936 Olympics. Prometheus gave fire (knowledge) to humans. For this transgression, the King of the Gods, Zeus punished Prometheus to have is liver eaten for eternity by an eagle.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: Weishaupt was aroused by Zoroastrianism and philosophies of the ancient Parsees. He planned to use fire allegories in the symbols and rituals of the higher degrees of the Illuminati. The color red is prominent in the higher degrees of Illuminati Priest and Illuminati Regent.

Links to Freemasonry: The Statue of Liberty was designed by Freemason Frederic Bartholdi.

The name Lucifer literally means “bringer of light”.

Skull reminds young initiates of their own mortality

Links to the Illuminati: The Skull and Bones is an elite fraternity at Yale University, a prestigious American university. Their headquarters is known as “the Tomb”. There’s a painting of skulls with the quote:

illuminati symbols beggar king Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

“Who was the fool, who the wise man, beggar or king? Whether poor or rich, all’s the same in death.”

“Wer war der Thor, wer Weiser, Bettler oder Kaiser? Ob Arm, ob Reich, im Tode gleich.”

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: The Illuminati Regent or Illuminati Prince initiation rituals consisted of three rooms which the initiate had to visit in succession. In the first room the candidate would find a skeleton with a sword and a crown at its feet. The candidate would then be asked if the bones were the bones of a king, a nobleman or a beggar. As in the Order of the Skull and Bones, the scene intended to make the candidate reflect on his own mortality.

Links to Freemasonry: The Master Mason carpet features a skull to remind the initiate of his own mortality, just as in the Illuminati and in the Skull and Bones.

No.9 Obelisk

The Illuminati has raised Obelisk in all its major power centers

Links to the Illuminati: The Illuminati has placed monuments in prime locations around the world. The Washington monument marks their military arm, the Cleopatra’s Needles in New York and the in London mark their financial centers and the Vaticano in Saint Peter’s Square marks their spiritual dominance.

Dr. Stan Monteith notes that an obelisk seen from above looks like a dot in a circle, or more accurately an eye. (see Illuminati symbol #1)

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: Weishaupt’s Illuminati did not pay special attention to obelisks.

Links to Freemasonry: The Freemasons conducted an elaborate cornerstone laying ceremony of the Washington monument in July 1848. In 1880, more than 9000 Freemasons attended the cornerstone laying ceremony for the New York needle. The ceremony included a Masonic parade down Fifth Avenue with more than 50000 spectators.

No.10 Nazi Salute

Was Hitler an Illuminati puppet?

nazi salute Top Ten Illuminati Symbols

Heil Hitler, a symbol that will get you jail time in some European countries.

The Bellamy Salute traditionally accompanying the Pledge of Allegiance was changed in December 1942 as it became more and more associated with the infamous Nazi Regime. The Olympic salute which is also similar to the Nazi salute has always generated controversy whenever it is.

Links to the Illuminati: The Nazi Salute based on the ancient “Roman” salute was adopted by the Nazis in the 1930s. Hitler was a creation of Illuminati bankers. General Electric, General Motors, DuPont, Ford and Standard Oil were eager to go to war and reap in the benefits. American branches of the Illuminati bankrolled World War 2 and kept feeding Hitler’s war machine until the very end of the war.

Links to the Bavarian Illuminati: No. None of the grips and recognition signal used by the Illuminati resembled the Nazi salute.

Links to Freemasonry: None. Hitler banned freemasonry in Germany because in his beliefs in the Elders of Zion and the Judeo-Masonic Conspiracy.
