I'm not sure whether this question will make sense or not but what is the symbolism or meaning behind the logos or symbols that are associated with the walls of Maria, Rose & Sina?

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

Are they suppose to represent the current King or are they some sort of recognizement of some past Kings and Queens in AOT in the last 100 years? What are the logos suppose to mean? Who is in them? If its not a person, is it suppose to represent or show how humans have managed to survive from titans in 100 years?

I haven't watched the anime in a while so whether it was revealed or not (I am not sure) however I am pretty sure they didn't address it. Does anyone know?

I don't know much about Shingeki no Kyojin but could they be Catholic Saints? I'm quite sure Maria and Rose are names to Saints, and i found this link talking about a Saint Sina, could be that the walls were built by Catholics and they named them after well known Saints –  Memor-X Jul 7 '14 at 3:41
I would guess those are Maria, Rose, and Sina. –  キルア Jul 7 '14 at 4:17
@キルア- I don't understand. People are they? –  Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 7 '14 at 4:22
@アズーサ lol, I'm just being a smartass. I'm pretty sure those are who the icons represent, but the story has not revealed who they are. (Thus why it's not an answer.) –  キルア Jul 7 '14 at 4:42
I think that my mom told me that it meant: "Maria, the rose without spears"... "Sine" means "without" in Latin but idk. –  user13838 Apr 10 at 13:17

1 Answer 1

As stated in the first chapter, they (humanity) built those walls over a century and have lived in them during that time. At this point in the series, there hasn't been any declaration about the wall's symbols (to my knowledge). We can only speculate, but keep in mind the fact that the walls are old and the people depicted in their emblems quite possibly have the same antiquity.
