Symbol for Twin and Twin Symbol Meanings

"It's the most breathtakingly ironic things about living: the fact that we are all-identical twins included-alone. Singular. And yet what we seek-what saves us-is our connection to others."
---Wally Lamb

There is no one single symbol for twin, rather there are many that span across time and cultures.

Of course, the tricky thing about the symbolism behind twins is they are both together and separate. Meaning - when one considers twins - one must consider their duality as much as their unity.

You will see many of the twin symbols below represent the closeness indicated by twins as well as the duality they express.
