The white-on-black rendition of the The Sigil of Baphomet.
The "Samael/Lilith" version.

The Sigil of Baphomet is the official insignium of the Church of Satan and is trademarked and copyrighted by the Church of Satan.[1][2][3] The image first appeared on the cover of The Satanic Mass LP in 1968 and later on the cover of The Satanic Bible in 1969.[4]

The Church of Satan's sigil was redesigned from the original "Samael/Lilith" goat pentagram which first appeared in the book La Clef de la Magie Noire by French occultist Stanislas de Guaita, in 1897.
