The Uraeus is the serpent emblem found in Egyptian portrayals of Royalty and Deity. It is a symbol of divine authority, representing the Goddess Wedjat as the all seeing eye of Ra, who was believed to protect the Pharaohs by spitting fire, and the emblem of the Lower Kingdom of Egypt.

According to legend, the Cobra was given to the pharaohs as a sign of kingship by the God Geb.
