The Deathly Hallows Symbol is from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Series. This and what it represents is a centeral focus of the seventh book of the series. The three shapes with in the symbol represent the three most powerful and or sacred objects in the Wizarding World. Having all three supposedly makes one the master of death.
The Deathly Hallows
- The vertical line represents the Elder Wand. Legend says this is the most powerful wand in existance, and it has a long and rather bloody history,
- The circle is the Resurrection Stone. About the size of a pebble and black in color, this gem could bring the dead back to life, though not completely. The dead return as little more than ghosts and they do not stay long.
- The Triangle is the final piece of the symbol. This represents the Cloak of Invisibility. There are other cloaks in existance, but the Hallow is an extrodinary one. It never fades, does not appear to be effected by spells and is said to be powerful enough to hide the wearer from death itself.
- The Deathly Hallows symbol has been around for a while. It orginated from a fairytale told to magical children; The Tale of the Three Brothers.
