While Hayao Miyazaki, the creator of many of anime's most iconic works (and the only anime feature film to have won an Oscar!), uses symbolism a lot in his films, he isn't a fan of actual symbols. There is one, however that plays an important role in Castle in the Sky (aka Laputa) and that is the Laputa royal coat of arms seen on the Levistone, a magic crystal of the fictional mineral Volucite (or Aetherium/Ethereum) that makes the titular castle fly – and the Castle in the Sky Levistone Hurricane Lamp Keychain light up!
The Castle in the Sky Levistone Hurricane Lamp Keychain is just 50 x 145 x 36 mm (2 x 5.7 x 1.4"), so you can actually use it as a key ring (it has the chain, clip, and everything). But you can also use it as decoration for your shoulder bag, backpack, or tote bag: its bright red color and eerie blue light with the crest in the middle (just like the stone in the castle) gives a special character to your bag.
