Neter - God in Egyptian hieroglyphics

God in ancient Egyptian was ntr or neter or netjer or netcher .According to some people this hieroglyph can be read as naturu.

The hieroglyph for god consists of two symbols- a flag with a long pole and seated god.The flag reads neter and it means divine, nature,the divine nature of things.The second symbol of the seated god is a determinitive,meaning that it is not read but it determines what the flagpole is about.So the two signs put together mean god (

The long-poled flag was usually placed beside shrines along roads in ancient Egypt ,hence its meaning as 'divine'.

seated god-king (Not read.A determinative sign.)
