Holy symbols are a large part of how we identify religions. The cross may be a symbol of one kind or another to many religions, but it is known primarily for its connection to Christianity. The six pointed star has a place in many religions around the world, but as the Star of David, it is a symbol most closely associated with Judaism. Even Islam, which eschews images even more than the other Abrahamic religions, calls the crescent its identifiable symbol.
Drill down into any religion though, and you will find deeper "mysteries" and the holy symbols that go with them. The Norse pagans called upon the runes to tell the future and to be a spiritual guide. The Greater Key of Solomon is a tome containing dozens of symbols, each containing other symbols, which some occultists believe can grant the user control over spirits, angels, and demons. Shamanic religions often use animals as symbols, calling upon their greater qualities at the appropriate times, like the foresight of the eagle, the strength of a bison, or the endurance of the wolf. Of course, where religion and philosophy meet, stranger symbols appear, like the yin-yang which represents how all things contain opposites, which themselves contain opposites.
