Over the years and various games, we've gotten numerous interpretations of the Fire Emblem.
Originally, it was the Binding Shield, but the it was represented as things like seals/crests, stones, and a medallion.

Personally, Lehran's Medallion is my favorite. The way it affected the world around it felt most impactful, for me at least.

Going with Lehran's Medallion since I think it had a compelling reason to be called the fire emblem and it was one of the most integral to the plot. In comparison a bunch of the others feel like important objects or symbols within the game world that had the fire emblem name kind of forced on them. Like, what connection is their between Sothis and flames that makes calling her crest the crest of flames make any sense outside of knowing they wanted to shoehorn in a fire emblem?

Wait the Yato is the Fire Emblem in Fates? Only having played Conquest I assumed it was the necklace Azura wears.

Yeah, it's called the seal of fire or something like that, so like the crest of flames it isn't explicitly called fire emblem but is pretty clearly meant to be that game's incarnation of the idea
