The Sigil of Baphomet is the official insignia for the Church of Satan. It is also a symbol that is used by several other organizations, usually those associated with Satanism and the Left-Hand Path.

The Sabbatic Goat, also know as the Great God Pan, Abraxas, Thanateros, or the Horned God. The most popular rendering was drawn in the 19th century by Eliapha Levi. Often used as a symbol of Satan, especially in Satanism, and depicted as a Goat's Head symbol, an upside down five-pointed star (cf. pentagram), or a man with horns and goat-legs.

The pentagram has long been associated with the planet Venus, and the worship of the goddess Venus, or her equivalent. It is also associated with the Roman Lucifer, who was Venus as the Morning Star, the bringer of light and knowledge.
