The Sematawy sign

 The Sema-tawy

 
The Sema-tawy sign is one of the ancient Egyptian symbols, which means the unification of the two lands, and as we know that the ancient Egyptian loves symbolism, he brings a type of plant to point to the north and a different kind of plant refers to the south and connects these two types of plants on one peg. 
 
This is a symbol of the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt over a capital. The Sema-tawy sign represents the trachea and the king's lungs with papyrus and lotus plant tied around it, which means that the people of Egypt catch their breath of life through the king's lungs.

It is unknown if this was perhaps a rite that would have been enacted at the beginning of a reign or merely a symbolic representation. Many of the depictions of the unification show two gods binding the plants.
