What are naruto clan symbols?
The naruto clan symbols have not been fully explained yet. The Naruto series's audience only knows that each clan has its logo in Naruto, which is seen from different characters who wear similar symbols. Some of the naruto clan symbols have obvious meanings related to the family, abilities, and characters from that family who we are introduced to the audience. In the following paragraphs, you will see brief explanations of naruto clan symbols and their meanings. In this article, the focus will be on the main naruto clans from the rookie 12 since there are many characters.
Uzumaki clan symbol
The Uzumaki clan symbol is illustrated with a swirl within a circle. The word "Uzumaki" means "whirlpool," so this symbol is a direct pictorial translation of the clan's namesake. The origin of the Uzumaki symbol comes specifically from Naruto's character, who's ability is to make a spiraling sphere of wind and whose favorite food is "ramen."
Uchiha clan symbol
The Uchiha clan symbol is quite commonly used to make more giant flames. That naruto's clan symbol makes an immediate sense considering that the Uchiha clan is known for their fire Jutsu.
Haruno clan symbol
The Haruno clan symbol is illustrated with a circle. In Japanese calligraphy art, a simple ring involves elegance and strength, among other things. Hence, these two things represent sakura since her elegant and cherry blossom namesake and her ninja abilities are focused on power itself.
Nara clan symbol
The Nara clan is a circle with a river, wavy lines, and three small pillar lines. Unfortunately, there is no direct and approved meaning for this symbol, but probably the Nara clan symbol is heavily inspired by two different ideas.
- The first idea is that the symbol looks like pillars and a river, which might be trees. This image refers to a forest where Shikamaru Nara gets his namesake (a Japanese deer forest).
- The second idea cab is 影, "Kage," meaning "shadow." That kanji has three distinctive lines that could have been remade as the pillars, and some horizontal lines that probably have become the river.
Yamanaka clan symbol
The Yamanaka clan symbol seems to be created quite wittingly. According to this image, one can make out either a pig's snout (Ino's namesake meaning "boar") or a flower that is sprouting from the ground (the Yamanaka clan family is known for their flower shop).
Akimichi clan symbol
The Nakamichi clan's symbol contains a stick and wings that may allude to Chouji's namesake's butterflies.
Inuzuka clan symbol
The Inuzuka clan symbol looks like a nose with two fangs below. The emblem is understandable due to considering the clan's beast mimicry ninjutsu.
Aburame clan symbol
The Aburame clan symbol is a circle in which there two other top circles connected in the middle of the ( ) sign with the other six lines. The emblem represents a bug with wings or maybe a six-legged spider in a web. That naruto symbol is very creative for this specific Aburame clan who is partnered with insects.
Hyuuga clan symbol
The Hyuuga (Hyūga) clan has a folding fan shape symbol and a single flame in the middle. The flame's design is related to the chakra in the manga series. The sign is a hand holding chakra, the Gentle Fist technique that the Hyuuga clan is known. Otherwise, the symbol can also be an eye, representing the line of sight that the Hyuuga clan has.
