The Illuminati was founded in 1776, and is believed to have been created in order to gather together a secret society of influential and powerful members that would then infiltrate every facet of society. The Illuminati have left behind and still leave clues of their influence through a vast number of signs and symbols with special meanings to those in power.
Illuminati Symbols Hidden in Plain Sight
For centuries, only the Illuminati insiders of the highest order, were privy to their true meanings. Secret Illuminati symbols appear in a startling number of places, hidden in plain sight, in popular culture, media, and even architectural designs of important buildings and monuments.
Members of the Illuminati have become integral in today’s governments, economies, media, communications systems, and entertainment industries. Knowledge of the Illuminati’s symbols will help common citizens understand the pervasiveness of the organization and not fall victim to them.
Symbols and propaganda only work when an individual does not consciously recognize them. In other words, the symbols have the most power when the true messages are hidden, thus working on an individual’s subconscious level by triggering an emotional response to the message or the symbol. However, once we recognize the true meaning of a symbol or message, we then can filter them out and their intended effects on us are rendered obsolete.
Here are the Ten Illuminati Signs and Symbols often hidden in plain sight:
1) The Pyramid
There are a few different interpretations of why the pyramid is such a powerful symbol of the Illuminati. One states that the Pyramid represents the command structure of the Illuminati organization, with the capstone symbolizing the Elite, with the most important members who are privy to all its secrets. The middle of the pyramid represents the various layers of society with the “masses” being at the bottom of the pyramid. IE. the base represents the uninitiated masses that the elite rule. Another interpretation is that the 13 steps of the Illuminati pyramid represent the 13 Illuminati Bloodlines.
2) The All-Seeing Eye
Many believe the All-Seeing Eye originated in ancient Egypt, where it was called the Eye of Horus or the Udjat, and was a symbol of royal power. In Satanism, it represents the Devil’s eye, watching Satan’s followers at worship. An All-Seeing Eye is placed in the capstone of a pyramid symbolizes Satan’s power over the masses.
The all seeing eye or eye of providence is most famously displayed on the back of the U.S. 1 Dollar Bill.
The All Seeing Eye is commonly associated with the Illuminati and many alleged Illuminati members are documented making hand symbols and looking through their fingers to represent the eye of providence.
The “All Seeing Eye” or “Eye of Providence” has shown up in various cultures through out history. Often the symbol is found adorning buildings and in artwork.
3) The Pentagram
The Pentagram is best known for its use – inverted – in occult and Satanic rituals. Originally used as a protection against demons, it now symbolizes the triumph of matter over spirit. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both believed to be Illuminati Elite, appointed a freemason to include a pentagram in the layout of the nation’s Capitol.
4) The Inverted Cross
A broken, inverted cross was used by Roman emperor Nero to represent the destruction of Christianity. It is present on the tombs of many influential personalities suspected of being members of the Illuminati, including Nazi leaders.
You might come across individuals wearing an inverted cross tattoo as homage to the Illuminati and/or satanic beliefs.
Interestingly, the inverted cross is also known as Saint Peter’s Cross as it is associated with Saint Peter, the first Pope, who also happens to be one of the most revered figures in the Catholic religion. When St. Peter was martyred by crucifixion he was said to have requested to be crucified upside down because he didn’t feel worthy of dying in the same way as Jesus.
5) The Number of the Beast ( 666 )
Many believe that the numbers 666 represents the Anti-Christ who will control the Illuminati as he creates the New World Order. One of the more famous references to 666 is found in the Bible in Revelation 13:17,18, that no man might buy or sell unless he identify with the Mark of the Beast, or the Name of the Beast, or identify with the number of his Name, 666.
It is often seen as a hand-sign used pervasively today by public figures as a homage to the Illuminati Elite. What many simply see as a “Okay” sign is actually a representation of 3 sixes in a row.
Some create this sign over their eyes, adding the All-Seeing Eye to the sign.
6) The Obelisk
The Obelisk is a monolith standing in a place of power. It is a phallic symbol, connected with the Egyptian god Ra. In pagan cultures, obelisks are symbols of patriarchal control of the masses. The Illuminati have raised obelisks in major power centers, including the Washington Monument, two Cleopatra’s Needles in New York and London, and the Vaticano obelisk in Rome.
7) The Owl
The owl represents the powerful pagan lord of the underworld, as well as Minerva, goddess of wisdom. The Illuminati use this symbol to show their power, and to show that they are the “wise rulers of the planet.” The most important sections of Washington, D.C. were laid out during the Capitol’s planning phase to form the shape of an owl. The owl is also the mascot of the Bohemian Grove, a compound that hosts a secret annual two-week gathering of the most powerful men in the world. If you look closely enough, you will even see a small owl hidden on the U.S. 1 Dollar Bill.
8) The Eternal Flame
The flame is a symbol of the Enlightenment, but is also a representation of Lucifer.
The Statue of Liberty holds the Eternal Flame. Designed by Freemason Frederic Bartholdi, she is actually pagan goddess Semiramis, who represents the destruction of the Old World Order and establishment of the New.
Some believe the eternal flame is very literal in symbolizing the Illuminati as the “Illuminated Ones“. Because of the connection some make with the worship Lucifer, this translates to “Bringer of Light”, and the meaning “Illuminated”.
The eternal flame is also sometime associated with the belief that when a really prominent public leader is assassinated by the Illuminati Brotherhood, the Illuminati creates a monument that serves as a “Symbol” to communicate that this assassination was carried out by their agents. In this case, ‘symbol’ is an eternal flame. President Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Princess Diana are a few contemporary examples often sited.
9) The Devil’s Horn (El Diablo)
Because it is believed that only deists and atheists can reach the highest ranks of the Illuminati, Satan is regarded as a powerful mythological figure. The hand-sign of the Devil’s Horn is flashed by many prominent politicians and wealthy entertainers.
Some people believe that Helen Keller was an occultist, and assisted the Illuminati by making the sign of Satan into the hand sign for “I Love You” in ASL.
10) The Bellamy Salute
What most people think of as the Nazi salute was used to accompany the Pledge of Allegiance until 1942. The same gesture has been used in Olympic Games ceremonies.
It is based on an ancient Roman (pagan) salute. It has been reported that Hitler was backed by Illuminati bankers, to push the US into the World War II, filling the coffers of Illuminati-run American companies such as General Electric, General Motors, Dupont, and Standard Oil.
