When you start looking into symbolism, you start seeing things and maybe “reaching”, I don’t know lol. I’ve been putting together a Corporate symbolism post and have had my mind looking at and comparing logos, coins, stamps, emblems, coat of arms, and freemasonry aprons, for many, many hours and so probably they’re all just blurring into one and I will need to take a break. :)
I did a little comparison of the USSR Communism (Soviet Union Coat of Arms) vs United Nations, WHO, World Bank, WTO, AMF, UNICEF comparison, and posted it to my group on Telegram asking my friends whether I was reaching…
Then I scrolled up in the conversation to see what I had missed throughout the day, and someone had shared this old Daily Mail article: “World’s top climate scientists told to ‘cover up’ the fact that the Earth’s temperature hasn’t risen for the last 15 years” from 2013, and when I went to the page, I noticed the World Meteorological Organization’s resemblance to the communism logo I had only seconds ago just posted.
And, now I need to go down a new “World Meteorological Organization” rabbit hole. Damn.
I know they aren’t the same things in the logo, that each part is officially representing something else. The star vs the compass, the wheat vs the olive branches, etc. etc. they aren’t the same symbols, I’m not blind, but I just can’t un-see the uncanny resemblance, and now I’m going to ChatGPT out my questions about the symbolism in these logos, and just see what comes up.
Note: ChatGPT answers cannot be trusted, you have to verify things if you want to use anything it says because it has a tendency to just provide random dates and random names, and a whole lot of propaganda. But as it’s going on bedtime here, I’ll concern myself with verifying another day, because I’ve already wasted an hour on the WMO website and read half-books about it and have another 20 tabs open about it, so this is going to be my “quick bedtime chat” for basic and quick “ballpark” information.
In ancient Roman religion and myth, the sickle (a curved farming tool with a short handle and a semicircular blade) was often associated with the god Saturn. This association likely arose due to the sickle’s association with agriculture and harvesting, which were important to Saturn as a god of fertility and agriculture. The sickle later became a symbol of the planet Saturn in astrology and alchemy, where it was used to represent the metal of lead and the melancholic temperament.
The concept of climate change and its potential impacts has been recognized by scientists for many decades. However, the increased public awareness and concern about the issue can be traced back to the 1980s, when the United Nations established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the issue gained more international attention. Since then, numerous scientific reports, extreme weather events, and advocacy efforts have contributed to the growing awareness and concern about climate change, leading to what some might describe as “climate hysteria”.
The World Meteorological Organization was established in 1950.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is an intergovernmental organization with a membership of 193 Member States and Territories. It originated from the International Meteorological Organization (IMO), the roots of which were planted at the 1873 Vienna International Meteorological Congress. Established by the ratification of the WMO Convention on 23 March 1950, WMO became the specialised agency of the United Nations for meteorology (weather and climate), operational hydrology and related geophysical sciences a year later. The Secretariat, headquartered in Geneva, is headed by the Secretary-General. Its supreme body is the World Meteorological Congress. (01) About World Meteorological Organization (WMO) https://public.wmo.int/en/about-us
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for promoting international cooperation in atmospheric science, climatology, hydrology, and related fields. Its primary role is to facilitate the exchange of information and data related to weather, climate, and water resources among its member states, and to promote the standardization of observational and forecasting techniques. The organization also works to strengthen national meteorological and hydrological services, particularly in developing countries, and to support international efforts to mitigate the impacts of extreme weather and climate events.
The World Meteorological Organization’s logo features a blue globe with intertwined lines representing the latitude and longitude lines of the Earth. The globe is surrounded by a wreath of olive branches, symbolizing peace.
What does the World Meteorological Organization’s logo symbolize?
The World Meteorological Organization’s logo consists of a blue globe with an olive branch wrapped around it and a series of lines representing latitude and longitude.

There is also a yellow compass on the WMO logo, what does that symbolize?
The yellow compass on the World Meteorological Organization’s logo is a symbol for meteorology, as it represents the direction and measurement of wind, which is an important aspect of weather forecasting and climate monitoring.
When was the compass added to the WMO logo and what was it before a compass?
The yellow compass was added to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) logo in 1996, replacing a depiction of an eagle that was present in the previous logo. The eagle symbolized the organization’s goal of reaching new heights in meteorological research and technology. The compass in the new logo represents the global nature of the WMO’s work and its focus on providing direction and guidance for weather and climate services worldwide.
What other changes has the WMO logo had?
The WMO logo has had several changes over the years. Here are some of the significant changes:
- The first WMO logo in 1950 featured a stylized globe with the organization’s name around it.
- In 1951, the WMO logo was changed to a globe with a stylized eagle on top of it.
- In 1991, the WMO logo was updated to a more modern design with a stylized globe and the organization’s name in blue and green.

The Soviet Union Coat of Arms, adopted in 1923 and used until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, symbolizes the socialist ideals of the Soviet state. The central image of the coat of arms is a hammer and sickle, which represent the unity of the industrial working class (hammer) and the peasantry (sickle) in building a socialist society. The emblem is surrounded by a wreath of wheat, which represents the bounty of the Soviet Union’s agricultural production. At the top is a red star, which symbolizes the guiding light of communism.
What other features does the USSR Soviet Union Coat of Arms have (other than the sickle, hammer, red star, and wheat)?
In addition to the sickle, hammer, red star, and wheat, the USSR Soviet Union Coat of Arms also featured a globe with the Northern Hemisphere facing forward, representing the country’s global influence. The globe was surrounded by a wreath of the Russian oak, symbolizing strength and eternity. Above the globe and wreath was a red ribbon with the Soviet Union’s official motto, “Workers of the world, unite!” written in gold letters.

It also looks like it has the world hovering over the sun?
Yes, the emblem of the Soviet Union also featured an image of the globe with lines of latitude and longitude, as well as a sun rising over the globe.
Hmm. (It doesn’t look like it’s rising). But anyway…
What does the sun symbolize in the Soviet Union Coat of Arms?
In the Soviet Union Coat of Arms, the sun represented the future and the bright path towards a communist society. It was meant to symbolize the hope for a better future for the working class, as well as the warmth and light that the sun brings to the world.
In Freemasonry, the hammer is one of the working tools of the Fellowcraft degree, and it is symbolic of force, strength, and endurance. It is used to shape and break stone, and in Masonic symbolism, it represents the individual’s ability to shape their own life through their actions and efforts.
When does the hammer in Masonry represent the assassination and resurrection of Hiram Abiff?
The story of the assassination and resurrection of Hiram Abiff is a central part of Masonic ritual, but the use of the hammer in this context does not refer to a specific year or time period. Instead, it is used as a symbolic tool in the ritual drama to represent the blow that killed Hiram and the subsequent search for his lost word or secret. The use of the hammer in this context is intended to convey the idea of the power of destruction and the need for resurrection or rebirth.
Who is Hiram Abiff to the Freemasons?
Hiram Abiff is a central figure in Masonic lore, believed by Freemasons to be the chief architect of King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. In Masonic tradition, Hiram Abiff is known for his knowledge, wisdom, and skill as a craftsman, as well as for his death and resurrection, which are considered symbolic of the Masonic journey of self-discovery and personal growth.
This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Freemasons believing in resurrection. Sounds… religious?
The concept of resurrection in Freemasonry is not meant to be taken literally as a religious belief in the way that it is in Christianity or other faiths. Instead, it is a metaphorical idea that is used to represent the idea of transformation or rebirth. The story of Hiram Abiff is used in Freemasonry as a way to illustrate the idea of resurrection, but it is not meant to be interpreted in a literal sense. Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that has elements of ritual and symbolism, but it is not a religion and does not have religious dogma or doctrine.
But they re-enact his assassination and resurrection in their rituals?
Yes, in Masonic ritual, the legend of Hiram Abiff is re-enacted as a symbolic drama. It is believed to illustrate Masonic teachings related to morality, brotherhood, and the search for truth. The assassination and subsequent resurrection of Hiram Abiff is seen as a metaphor for the death and rebirth of the soul, rather than a literal resurrection.
What does the compass in Freemasonry symbolize?
In Freemasonry, the compass symbolizes virtue, specifically, the ability to circumscribe our desires and keep our passions in due bounds. It is also used as a symbol of the importance of self-control and the need to stay on the path of morality and ethics. The compass is often paired with the square, which symbolizes morality and fairness, and together they represent the balance between physical and spiritual existence.
What does the sun in Freemasonry symbolize?
In Freemasonry, the sun is often seen as a symbol of divine power, enlightenment, and knowledge.

I’m currently looking at a NAZI Medal from 1934. On it, it has the words TAG DER ARBEIT, a man’s head, an eagle directly below his head standing on a Swastika. Behind the eagle’s left wing is a hammer, and behind the right wing is a sickle. Are you familiar with this medal? Can you tell me more about it? (03) A Totalitarian Monad: National Sozialism/Marxism-Leninism https://tsarizm.com/opinion/2019/06/16/a-totalitarian-monad-national-sozialism-marxism-leninism/
Yes, I am familiar with this medal. “Tag der Arbeit” means “Day of Labor” in German. This medal was created in 1934 to commemorate the “Day of Labor” celebration that was held on May 1 of that year. The man’s head on the medal is believed to be that of a worker, representing the German worker’s movement. The eagle standing on the swastika is a common Nazi symbol, and it symbolizes the Nazi Party’s goals of strength, power, and dominance.
The hammer and sickle behind the eagle’s wings are a reference to the Nazi Party’s belief in a shared ideology with the Soviet Union. The Nazi Party saw themselves as socialists, and as such they adopted certain socialist symbols, such as the hammer and sickle. However, this was largely symbolic, as the Nazi Party’s beliefs and policies were vastly different from those of the Soviet Union.
Overall, the medal was part of the Nazi Party’s propaganda campaign, designed to promote the idea of the “worker’s state” and to gain support from the German working class.
What does the Swastika symbolize?
The swastika is an ancient religious symbol that has been used for thousands of years in many different cultures, including in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. It represents many different things in different cultures, including good luck, auspiciousness, and the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. However, due to its association with Nazi Germany and the atrocities committed during World War II, the swastika is now widely recognized as a symbol of hate and oppression. Its use is banned in many countries, and it is considered a deeply offensive symbol to many people around the world.
What are the different meanings of the Sickle that is used within emblems, crests, and coats of arms? What are the various other meanings of the sickle? Saturn, Satan, Harvest, Death, Resurrection? I’m seeing a lot, I’m collecting a list.
The sickle is a symbol that has been used for various purposes throughout history, and it can have different meanings depending on the context.
- Agriculture: The sickle is often used to represent agriculture and farming, as it is a tool that has been used for centuries to harvest crops. In this context, the sickle can represent the importance of agriculture to a particular region or the hard work and dedication of farmers.
- Justice: In some cases, the sickle can be used to represent justice, particularly in the context of the Roman goddess of justice, Justitia. Justitia is often depicted holding a sword in one hand and a set of scales in the other, but sometimes she is also shown holding a sickle, which is meant to represent the swift and impartial nature of justice.
- Saturn: In ancient Roman mythology, the god Saturn was often depicted holding a sickle or scythe, which represented his agricultural role as the god of sowing and harvesting crops.
- Harvest: The sickle can symbolize the harvest season, which is a time of plenty and abundance in many cultures. In this context, the sickle represents the tool used to cut the crops and gather the harvest.
- Death: In some cultures, the sickle is associated with death and the Grim Reaper, who is often depicted holding a scythe or sickle as a symbol of the end of life.
- Resurrection: In certain religious traditions, the sickle can represent the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. For example, in the Egyptian myth of Osiris, the god is often depicted holding a crook and a flail, which are similar to a sickle and represent his role as a god of agriculture and fertility.
- Satan: In some modern Western cultures, the sickle has been associated with Satanism and other occult practices. This is likely due to its use as a symbol of death and the Grim Reaper.
These are just a few examples, and there may be other symbolic meanings associated with the sickle in different cultures and contexts.
What about harvesting of souls, has the sickle been used in this context?
In general, the sickle has been used as a symbol of reaping or harvesting souls in various religious and spiritual traditions, particularly those that involve beliefs in an afterlife or reincarnation. The use of the sickle in this context is often associated with the idea of separating the worthy from the unworthy, or the saved from the damned.
I’m interested in which cults or groups have the idea of separating the worthy from the unworthy
The idea of separating the worthy from the unworthy is a common theme in many religious and philosophical traditions. However, there are some groups and cults that emphasize this idea in particular ways or with specific beliefs. Here are a few examples:
- The Heaven’s Gate cult: This group believed in the idea of a “graduation” or “evacuation” from Earth to a higher level of existence. They believed that only a select few who were “chosen” would be able to make this transition, and that the rest of humanity would be left behind.
- The Order of the Solar Temple: This secretive group believed in the existence of an “inner circle” of enlightened beings who were destined to inherit the Earth after a coming apocalypse. They believed that only those who were initiated into their group could be part of this inner circle.
- The Branch Davidians: This group believed that their leader, David Koresh, was a messiah figure who had been chosen by God to lead them through the end times. They believed that only those who followed Koresh’s teachings would be saved from the coming judgment.
- The Raelian Movement: This group believes that extraterrestrial beings created humans and are coming back to Earth to save only a select few who are ready to join them. They believe that this selection process is based on the individual’s level of spiritual development and ability to understand their teachings.
These are just a few examples, and there are many other groups and cults that believe in some form of “separation” or selection of the worthy. It is important to note that these beliefs are not shared by mainstream religions or philosophies, and are often considered extreme or dangerous.
The Georgia Guidestones seems to suggest there are others here that might have the same idea, and whoever paid for those were very rich. And, I think there are those here, who are using the climate hysteria for the same purpose. There is also the CCP, seemingly spreading their social credit system past their own neck of the woods into our daily lives. There’s also a new injection they’re trying to get into the arms of every man, woman and child in the world. Lots to be suspicious about, that perhaps there is some kind of sick and twisted eugenics / separating the worthy from the unworthy / or some kind of secret powerful cult behind it. But that’s why we ask questions and seek answers. So we don’t become one of the victims.
What are the different meanings of the Hammer that is used within emblems, crests, and coats of arms? Are there any to do with Harvest, Death, or Resurrection? I’m collecting a list of various meanings of the use of the Hammer in symbolism.
Here are some possible meanings of the hammer in various contexts:
- In Christianity, the hammer is sometimes associated with Saint Joseph, who was a carpenter and is depicted with a hammer in some artwork. The hammer can thus represent craftsmanship, labor, and the virtue of hard work.
- In Norse mythology, the god Thor is associated with a hammer called Mjölnir, which he used to protect humanity from evil forces. The hammer can thus represent strength, protection, and power.
- In Masonry, the hammer is used in the ritual of the third degree, where it is associated with the “death” of Hiram Abiff and his “resurrection” as a symbol of rebirth and transformation. The hammer can thus represent initiation, transformation, and renewal.
- In communist symbolism, the hammer is often paired with a sickle to represent the unity of workers and farmers in a socialist society. The hammer can thus represent labor, industry, and collectivism.
- In alchemy, the hammer is associated with the process of transmutation, where it is used to break down and refine materials. The hammer can thus represent transformation, purification, and enlightenment.
- In some African traditions, the hammer is used as a symbol of the power of the king or ruler, who is responsible for maintaining order and justice in society. The hammer can thus represent authority, justice, and leadership.
Interesting. Ended up spending an hour on this, but now I need sleep. You could spend years on this subject… :)
