This article is about symbolism in religion. See religious symbols for graphical symbols. See United States Department of Veterans Affairs emblems for headstones and markers for such symbols as used by that organization.

Religious symbolism is the use of symbols, including archetypes, acts, artwork, events, or natural phenomena, by a religion.[citation needed] Religions view religious texts, rituals, and works of art as symbols of compelling ideas or ideals.[citation needed] Symbols help create a resonant mythos expressing the moral values of the society or the teachings of the religion.
