The Mages Guild Coat of Arms

The oldest Empire-sanctioned Guild in existence, the Mages Guild's coat of arms is definitely unique and exotic in design. The origin story of the coat of arms remains a mystery -- some say it was first drawn by Vanus Galerion himself -- but as for the symbol itself there are two popular interpretations. First, it clearly resembles the star constellation of Ritual, a charge of the Mage constellation. Second, it symbolizes the eye of Magus--the primordial God of Sorcery--whom to us uninitiated in the arcane mysteries is known simply as the Sun. Indeed, both the Sun and the Stars are known by mages and astronomers as 'gateways' through which magicka flows to our mortal plane.
