Is Fortress and Sanctuary's Icons interchanged?

As we all know, Haven's icon is a cross and an x with a big circle at the middle. Academy's is like an Egyptian cross with an eye. Stronghold is a hand, Necropolis is a spider and so on...

Fortress and Sanctuary doesn't make sense for me. Fortress has a snake, which doesn't make sense at all. It should've been Sanctuary's. Sanctuary has what? Fire? a Shield? a flower? Fortress would fit that icon better.


What do you think? Is Fortress and Sanctuary's icons interchanged?

Sanctuary's icon is supposed to be a lotus flower... as in "The Lotus Empire."

I can't find a picture to accurately describe it, but the Fortress emblem is, I believe, based off of old Germanic/Scandinavian drawings, a Lindworm I believe, based off of Jormungandr. I am not 100% certain, but it is supposed to give off the vibe.

Something sort of resembling this, I believe.

The "Egyptian cross" is called an Ankh.

Anyway, the symbol for Sanctuary has always been a Lotus to me, and a Lotus is something that's a symbol for Asian based cultures. As such, it fits Sanctuary perfectly.

To complete was Protolisk said.
This was the first Fortress symbol (for H5).



It was obviously simplified later.
