The world of Encantadia has several notable symbols.

Devas Circle

A Devas Circle is a recurring symbol in the world of Encantadia.

Devas Circle

Devas Circle

Devas Circle of Being

Devas Circle of Creation

Creation. Being. Physicality. Tangibility. Reality.
Bathaluman: Ether
Elemental Affinity: Earth

The Devas Circle of Being is the most prominent of all the magic circles. It is seen in the halls and rooms of the Palaces of Lireo, Sapiro and Hathoria, as well as in the ruins of Cassiopea's island and Etheria. It also appears in the Key of Asnamon. It represents physicality, what is tangibly real.

This is the origin of the symbol of the Earth Gem (Brilyante ng Lupa). This circle is directly associated with Ether, the Bathaluman adversary of Emre, Father-God of Encantadia. Perhaps it is because Ether is the goddess of creation. In the mythology, it was she who often creates living entities such as Olorkas and fell beasts. It is quite possible that it was through her that the denizens of Encantadia were brought to life way before the great rift between the deities.

This is the origin of the symbol of the Water Gem (Brilyante ng Tubig). Among the magical charms and spells, this is the most subtle yet most powerful of all, whether used for the path of light or for darkness. It holds the key to combining any of the essences or elements. The one who understands this circle has the power to use the fifth element to either combine all singularities into one omnipotent essence or bring forth destruction to all there is in Encantadia.[1]

Bathala: Keros
Elemental Affinity: Soul

It is what makes everything whole. It is also the eye of the void. Matter and anti-matter. The cycle of birth, destruction and rebirth is its equation. For how shall existence have meaning without destruction? How does one gain rebirth with out one's demise?[2]

The composition of the Devas Circle of Unity differs from the other Devas Circles. The configuration of this circle has equal number of Wisdom, Being, Spirituality and Emotion symbols befitting for Unity.[3]

The elemental gems bear symbols which are simpler variants of the Devas symbols.

The collar of the armor of the Kambal-Diwa of the Fifth Gem contains all the elemental gem symbols, from left to right:

  • Air
  • Water
  • Soul[4]
  • Earth
  • Fire

A different Fifth Gem symbol is revealed in Episode 158. According to Sir Noel Flores, there is a need to change the symbol of the Soul Gem because the "circle" is now the symbol of unity or wholeness.[5] The Soul Gem symbol is at the center, Fire Gem symbol at 12 o'clock position, Earth Gem symbol at 3 o'clock position, Air Gem symbol at 6 o'clock position, and Water Gem symbol at 9 o'clock position.

Each symbol represents a specific quality based on Encantadia lore[6], here are the following qualities that each gem symbol represent:

  • Fire - Emotions (Damdamin): Anger (Galit), Joy (Ligaya), Sadness (Lungkot), Fear (Takot)
  • Air - Spirituality, Faith, Knowledge, Understanding
  • Soul - Unity, Oneness, Peace (possibly innocence)
  • Water - Wisdom, Intuition, Foresight
  • Earth - Being, Physicality (possibly courage)

Talulot

Fire Devas symbol Earth Devas symbol Talulot
Fire (Emotion) Earth (Being) Talulot (Union, Creation)

The Talulot (in English: Petal) or Batuk (Enchan for Tattoo)[7][8] is a flower-like mark that appears on the palm of a female Sang'gre, a sign that she has conceived. It is the combination of the Fire Devas symbol and Earth Devas symbol. The Devas symbol for Being represents the Sang'gre herself. The Devas symbol for Emotion represents the male partner of the Sang'gre.
