It would be nice to gather a certain amount of them. I start out with two:

Famous one:

This one is less popular. A "Rota Mundi" (embedded in the frontespiece of Leibniz's "Dissertatio de Arte Combinatoria"). The rose in the center probably signifies the "quintessence"-

Recurrent "Symbol" in a lot of libraries also online. (although, it's more similar to a motto, actually):
tecta lege, lecta tege

One of Gabriele D'Annunzio's mottoes (Italian poet 1863-1938):

Tiles in "Alhambra" with Charles the fifth's motto (it is, to this day, the motto of the Spanish Royal Family):
"Plus ultra"
(the same of non plus ultra, just without the "non")

Probably the simpliest family crest ever conceived:

Motto: Nec descendere nec morari
Family: Italian: Scaligeri / della Scala based in northern Italy (nobles of German descent "Von der Leiter"- "of the ladder").
Almost fitting for the President of the European Commission.
