Family Signs - Im

Throughout the history, Turks have used specific figures as a family sign. They have used their mark on their weaves as well as their grave stones.
Mogul historian Residuttin, in his book Cami-ut Tevarih and Kasgarli Mahmut in his dictionary Divanu Lugat-it-Turk state that each Oguz tribe had a different sign. Those tribes should have continued to use their sign even after migrating to Anatolia, because many of the weaves bear motifs similar to those signs.
Signs of Oguz tribes as listed in Divanu Lugat-it Turk are illustrated below and stand for the tribes Kayi, Salur, Bagduz, Bayat, Avsar, Yazir, Igdir, Eymir, Alayunlu, Becene, Cavuldar and Cepni.
