Crook and flail

The god Osiris is represented by the crook and flail. He was regarded as one of the most powerful gods. He was a fertility god and a god of the underworld. Seth assassinated Osiris. Before Osiris became the god of the underworld, Iris, Osiris’ wife, reassembled him and was able to become pregnant with Horus.

Shepherds use the crook to tend to their sheep. Herding goats is done with the flail. The crook denotes monarchy, while the flail symbolizes the land’s fertility. In ancient Egypt, pharaohs utilized these emblems.
