Divergent Faction Symbols Show Societal Divide

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In the world of the young adult novel Divergent, set to come to the big screen not soon enough for fans, the city of Chicago is split into five factions. Each firmly place how the people who live there conduct their days. Courtesy of the Divergent Instagram account, Movie Fanatic has the five “official” symbols of each faction.

We’ve already seen a first Divergent still, and this latest set of images released is surely set to feed the fire of the passionate fan base the young adult novel has all over the world. Each faction’s poster sums up their purpose with a phrase above the symbol that we honestly think is outstandingly impeccable.

The first one we present is the Dauntless faction symbol, with its flame circle.

Second up is Candor, an area of Chicago inhabited by people who are most known for their directness… thus their name.

Our third symbol of the Divergent world is Erudite, a people united by the passion for intelligence and reason.

Next on the list is Abnegation, a group who is obsessed by their lack of obsession with themselves. There are as selfless as people come. Clearly from the Shailene Woodley Divergent photo we just ran, her character firmly sits in this group.

Lastly, we present the symbol for Amity. They are, like their moniker suggests, known for their kindness.

Fans must be losing it with anticipation as they have to wait until March 21, 2014 to check out Divergent when it premieres in theaters.
