The fasces describes an axe with a bundle of sticks tied to its handle. It was used as a symbol of civic authority in ancient Rome and in the United States. However, due to its use as a symbol of Italian Fascism, the fasces can be seen as offensive if not used in a proper historical context.
The fasces has been requested as a new symbol for our heraldry tool by one of our users.
