Think about the symbols in your life. If you are married there are rings. If you are a member of a group, fandom there are symbols you display so others can identify you.
A symbol is an image of an idea not the idea itself. There is nothing wrong with the display of symbols if we humans keep them in perspective. Don’t display a symbol that you don’t fully understand.
Learn for yourself what a symbol stands for, good or bad. Make sure you really want to be associated with it before you show it to the world. Often the symbols you adopt are what you will be known for.
Above all, keep the symbol in its place and do not make it and object of worship then it becomes an idol.
