So they adopted the "Imperial Crown and attributes of Jupiter Capitolinus" instead, reviving the parliamentary portcullis for themselves. The crown is an official symbol of the sovereignty and prerogative of the Empire, adopted by the Senate when it imagined that it would be exercising that sovereignty. It appears on things, but the mink aren't as fond of it as of the oak and thunderbolt.
This is both totally plausible and completely cool!
