Does anyone know where they got the symbol from? I have a friend who thinks it looks similar to the free masons symbol, which I find quite strange because some people think there is a link between Knights Templar and the free masons.
It's a little like the Freemason symbol, which is a square and compass. I'm hoping the encyclopedia explains what it's supposed to be. I'm not entirely sure if the Freemasons go hand in hand with Templars- I know that's how they're often portrayed in movies, but I also know that theocrats have been at odds with them in the past. The Roman Catholic Church hasn't been a big fan of theirs, especially.
Maybe... I'd think it should mean something. Groups don't usually have arbitrary nonsense symbols representing them, unless they're nonsense groups. Even then, I guess their symbol would represent nonsense, so it's accomplishing its mission...
I remember a couple years back, may have been on the AC2 boards, some guy thought the Assassin symbol looked like a certain part of the female anatomy. --- Yoda of Borg are we: Futile is resistance. Assimilate you, we will.
