Originally designed as a unifying symbol for TWC’s first global event, the Warrior’s Sigil has grown into an international emblem of resistance against fracking.

It has been used everywhere from the Balcombe protection camp in the UK, to the Bentley blockade in Australia. Fracktivists all over the world have it tattooed on them.

Many within the UK (pagans and non-pagans alike) view the symbol as the British equivalent to Australia’s famous yellow Lock the Gate triangle. To members of TWC, it is a symbol of protection and luck.

One of the Sigil’s more interesting attributes is that it appears differently to different people. Some people see a mouse, other’s a raven’s head, others still a cornucopia. Thus does the Sigil appear to each person uniquely. The Sigil talks to you in its own symbolic language; it is very much alive.
