The 10 Symbols of Burning Man

Illustrated geometric icons inspired by The Ten Principles of Burning Man.

By Wick

Since I designed the 10 Symbols of Burning Man, I've been blown away by the art and gifting that has been inspired by the symbols from around the world. Thankyou to everyone who liked, shared and made use of the symbols!

I've also started to use the symbols in some of my own art, and I'd like to share it with you here.

I've designed these symbols with a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license which allows you to copy, distribute, and adapt the symbols for non-commercial purposes, as long as you credit the original sources.




"Elemental" was the theme for Blazing Swan 2017. Incorporating the 11 Prcinples of Blazing Swan.


The Gift


The greatest gift you can give, is yourself. "The Gift" is an original digital painting by Wick, featuring the Gifting symbol - one of the 10 Symbols of Burning Man.




Consent, a triality of Burning Man Principles - Gifting, Communal Effort and Immediacy. Consent takes a communal effort to appreciate the immediate circumstance, and is only a gift that you can give. This fused symbol features three of the 10 Symbols of Burning Man.


Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace, inspired by the purity of nature. "Leave No Trace" is a photo manipulation by Wick, featuring the Leave No Trace symbol - one of the 10 Symbols of Burning Man.


Symbol Fusion

Fused Symbols


Fusing the 10 Symbols into 5 creates some interesting concepts both visually and ideologically. These fused symbols produce concepts of civic responsibility for decommodification; gifting immediacy; leave no trace self-reliance; communal effort in radical self-expression; and participation in radical inclusion.
