Is the shape of the bottom view of an eagle's skull.

They've did it, they've hacked Ubisoft and the Assassin Order.

This might be one of my favourite coincidences.

Let's all remember this the next time we see something in AC that "couldn't be an accident"!

Yeah, more like a concidence, but man, they look so similar to each other!

I wonder if that was a coincidence or that was their inspiration.

Personally I'd like to think of it as inspiration. After all this entire thing just rings "Seen, but unseen", as how the Assassins live.

The Assassin Emblem has a number of influences. The most important one is the Lambda...

Take a look at the logo on the shields.

This is the Lambda, the symbol of the Army of Sparta. Lambda these days is also used as a symbol of the gay community, and of course the logo of the Lambda is the symbol of the Half-Life games with Freeman holding the Coldbar being a gameplay correlative. Spartans were highly confused bunch of people in the old days, but their way of life inspired many philosophers over history.

Altair alternative meaning is flying eagle, leap of faith, eagle as a central AC icon, patrice's ingenuity --> they all lead me to believe it is not a coincidence instead an inspiration

I'm convinced that this isn't a coincidence. I mean, even the bottom curve has two pointy ends.

One of you people who occasionally interact with the devs on social websites could ask them.

Omg I saw that on Tumblr earlier.

It's pretty awesome if that's where they got their AC inspiration from :)

The artist who designed the Assassin symbol obviously had an eagle at their desk, killed it, and then found the design on the skull. It was not a coincidence.
