The Eye of Horus[1]

The Eye of Horus is an Imperial symbol dating back to the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.[1]

Originally known as the Eye of Terra, the eye represented the Emperor's eternal vigilance.[2] Following the Ullanor Crusade and the elevation of Horus to Warmaster, the Emperor allowed both Horus and the Sons of Horus to take the symbol for themselves.[1]

Ten thousand years later, the Black Legion continues to use the Eye of Horus in its own symbol.[3]


The Eye of Horus, also known as wadjet, is an ancient Egyptian symbol associated with the Egyptian god of the same name. It represented royal power, protection, and good health.
