What does the symbol on Junpei's hat mean?

Does it mean anything at all, or does it just look cool?

BTW, I think that it was a cool idea to give out his hat as a pre-order bonus. It makes a good game even better!

It's very similar to the Celtic Trinity symbol. Look that up in google and you'll see plenty.

Some use it as a protection symbol and I believe the Catholic church adopted it to stand for their trinity. Mind you, it should be older than that.

All you'd have to do it sharpen the points and shrink the circle a little so it fits into the loops and it would be the Celtic Trinity symbol.

Almost as though there is a non-Christian trinity represented in the protection spell (b/c the three are seperate but could be connected).

Is this something to really be contemplating?

It has nothing to do with Christianity or the Celtic Trinity. If anything it's likely a Japanese mon; it could, logically, be the kamon of the Iori family.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mon_%28emblem%29

You'll see one on there that's very similar to the symbol on Junpei's hat, just pointy. There are thousands of mon and kamon out there, so it's likely there's one that actually matches the one on Junpei's hat.


Or it could just represent a fictional baseball team.
