If you take a closer look, you may notice that the left wing is missing its bottom tip. The authors of the video game have never given any official explanation of the fact, so it appears that there is not any deep symbolic meaning behind it and this is just a stylistic touch.


The Skyrim icon uses its most recognizable element — the sharp ornate dragon, executed in gradient silver and placed on a glossy black circle. The black circle is enclosed into a thick gray frame, which has a two-leveled inscription crossing its bottom part. The “Skyrim” inscription is executed in the uppercase, in light silver, and its thin lines and contours brilliantly accompany the lines of the dragon image.
