Two Siikesilla designs: these belong to the current President and Chancellor of Karolia, Rülik Loeslaes and Täni Säpaarv
A Siikesilla (Románš: Sikâsíllâ) is a design or device which is intrinsic to the folk culture of Karolia and is held to bring good fortune, wisdom and strength to the holder. It is usually made up of a form based around concentric circles and radial lines, but other shapes may also be found. Every Karolian will traditionally have a Siikesilla that they have designed as part of a coming-of-age ceremony; the completed design is often realised as an amulet or carving and, once accepted, cannot be altered or disinherited.

The concept and term derives from the Siike, a magical object in Karolian mythology which is usually depicted as a pot or cauldron (sometimes a chalice or millstone) possessing magical powers to communicate with and restore the dead to life, produce anything the finder desires and protection from enemies, as long as one remains with it. It is thought that the tradition derives from an episode in the Vaaräsiin epic in which the hero Kalet manages to retain some of the Siike's powers by carving its likeness in in gold using magical symbols, although other theories have also been proposed. The circular features of most designs are understood to be the pot or wheel-like shape of the Siike.
