Kamon is a symbol of one’s family or class.
There are 241 kinds of over 5116 kamon in Japan.
The history of kamon dates back to the Heian Period (794-1185), when there were 4 most powerful noble families, and they used kamon to signify membership in a family.
The designs of kamon are simple, and commonly plants are used as the motifs.
Other examples are animal, kanji, kabuto (helmet), coin or objects that mean something to the family.
