Breaking Benjamin's Symbol

I have always wondered what Breaking Benjamin's symbol was and what it meant. I thought that this would be the perfect type of thing to put in my blog. Through researching I found out that their symbol is the "Celtic Knot". I also found out that this design started to get popular in the late Roman Empire. There wasn't much written in history about the meaning of the celtic knot. According to whats-your-sign.com the celtic knot is a symbol of the endless time of nature. There is no beginning or ending in the celtic knot. It can be a protection symbol, warding off sickness and setbacks. This symbol works good for a band symbol. It is a symbol of protection and it also is a symbol of endless life. Breaking Benjamin could have chosen this symbol because they wanted there music to last forever.

  1. Benjamin Burnley has several phobias, one of which is the fear of dying. So a symbol of endless life is perfect for his band because it is personal to him. He has been quoted saying "I don't believe in a person's 'time to die' I want to put off dying as long as physically possible."

  2. I thought the band made the symbol themselves because the symbol looks like a B arranged in a square
