Image(symbol): crecent and star
The crecent moon and star symbolize the Lord that a religion Islam follows. It is not exactly a symbol of Islam but an image or indirect symbol of it. The moon describes the lunar calendar that they follow. Many Islamic countries follow this symbol by keeping it on their flag.

According to these Muslim scholars, Islam has no symbols. The crescent (note spelling) and are ancient pagan symbols and later were used by the Ottoman Empire. Please read this site.

Summeror, y912f or Mysterychicken, we'd appreciate it if you kept the same name for all of your posts.
A lot of folks believe that. However, the origins of the crescent and star are far more pagan. They represent early worship of the Sun and Planets. Islam somehow took the symbols, because Mohammad used them symbolizing something else. Not many folks know the details, see the second link.
