<------ There's Kynareth's. ;)

http://www.imperial-library.info/content/nine-divines has the rest of them.

A full list:

Akatosh: An hourglass
Arkay: Two interwoven loops
Dibella: A flower (Lily, to my eye)
Julianos: A triangle
Kynareth: A bird
Mara: A square knot
Stendarr: A spilled cup
Talos: The Imperial Dragon
Zenithar: An anvil

I thought the Red Diamond was the major one. Y'know, the thing on the Crusader's chest....
And his shield....
And what makes the pommel of the sword....

Yeah. And the pact between Alessia and the Eight. So, in some ways it is the symbol for all of them? I don't know.... :sadvaultboy:

I don't think its directly associated with the divines the way a crucifix is with Christianity, though I suppose you could say it represents them.

It represents Pelinal, who was in the shape of a gaping wound - the wound in Shezzar's chest, where his Heart used to be.

Also note the difference between the symbol for Skyrim and the Imperial Dragon symbols in earlier games.

Don't notice a difference? The diamond symbol is broken. That's because the covenant was shattered when the Amulet of Kings was destroyed. The Amulet was gifted to Alessia in some stories by Akatosh and others by Shezzar.

The red dragon means a lot of things.
