The Significance of the “Nun” Symbol

Nun,” or ن, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, ‘Nasrani.’ When ISIS issued an ultimatum to Christians in northern Iraq to “convert, pay or die,” they carried out their reign of terror by marking the houses and properties of Christians with this symbol, intended as a slur and a threat. Since then it has become an international symbol of solidarity with Middle Eastern Christians.
