The kiel is a sacred symbol associated with Noga. Because of its scant mention in the Noga Kard, its true purpose remains debated. However, it seems to have been used to honor important, exalted, and beloved persons, including Zagaods.

The symbol is often compared to the ankh of ancient Egypt in construct, but actually closer resembles the symbol of the planet Venus (♀, also used to designate females in biology and botany), having a circular loop and lower horizontal bar than the ankh. The kiel is not known to have any association with the ankh or Venus/female symbol other than appearance similarity.

All recovered physical kiel were found to be made out of blue/cyan-colored stones, such as sapphire and turquoise.
