Bell

green bullet Modern meaning
Not particularly common in modern logos. When a bell is used it is usually associated with communications. Unfortunately most of its traditional, positive symbolic meanings no longer apply to the modern world.

Interestingly the bell's swaying motion has been interpreted as symbolic of extremes such as good and evil, heaven and hell. It is also tied with sexual meanings (bell and handle), but at the same time can be a symbol of virginity as virgins in times past would adorn themselves with bells.
