There are several symbols in the novel, a major one being the birthmark over Sula's eye. The mark looks like a rose, but later in the novel, Nel says that the mark is getting darker, and Jude thinks it looks like a snake's head. The mark symbolizes the element of evil that the townspeople in Medallion think Sula has.
