Secular icon is a pictography of a person or objects that used for religious purposes. This sort of icon is having numbers of symbols. Keep in mind that icon is a graphic design device and it has design to represent some particles or action through it. International standards were evolved to harmonize the icons and symbols. Latter on, it can be seen particularly at international airports and road sights for helping the travelers.

These icons are also becoming easier to use for electronics users and for technical controller. Also, it can be used for warning symbols like biohazard, biological hazard. These are not only design to use as icons but also these are used as symbols. You can typically watch the secular icons in editorial cartoons whereas an individual picture can be applied to presenting a complete concept or entity. Often these icons are cultural specific, and considered as recognition of some selective symbols.


Governmental and Political Iconic Symbols

The secular icons are all seen mainly in the editorial cartoons, and where the simple image is used to represent the complex concept and entity. These are cultural specific, like recognition of symbols might depend on the deep understanding of current local situation as well as players involved, whereas others are very common they are all understood over various cultures (however not worldwide). The edifices like United States Capitol Building and White House, Tower of the Westminster, or Saint Basil’s Cathedral now have become the representations respectively of Governments of United States, Russia and Great Britain. Some other symbols (like bald eagle for United states, bear for Russia, and chinese dragon) are been used to represent the nations, as very distinct from governments.

Modern Computer Systems

The modern personal PC and control systems will make the extensive use of the icons in form of the small images representing these objects as documents, file folders, as well as applications in graphical user interface.
