What are the symbols on my profile?

Inspired by the designs of Japanese family crests, our Design team created symbols for reader profiles that embrace a richer meaning for people who support writers on Substack.

Founding members of a publication will display a five ring crest on their profile and paid subscribers of a publication will display a four ring crest.

You may notice these symbols when a reader leaves a comment on a post or on a reader's profile.
