so let’s talk about Rose
Rose’s symbol is a gem surrounded by petals and a spiral of thorns. it’s on her shield, her sword, and her cannon, and it’s in her armoury.
and it’s on their flag.
Yellow Diamond’s followers wear her symbol, and it’s on one of the devices Peridot activates in Marble Madness.
but the gems don’t wear Rose’s symbol.
they wear the star
because it represents all of them, as equals, together
because that’s the kind of leader Rose was.
