What is the meaning behind the DhO banner symbol?

The blue semicircle, green triangle, and red circle on sticks at the top of the page - do they have some symbolic meaning? I must have scrolled past it a hundred times without thinking anything of it until today.

I always assumed that they were impermanence, not-self, and suffering, with the little lines showing the arising, existing, and passing away even of these three characteristics.  But who knows.

Doesn't it change? I thought it cycled through a few different images.

Thanks Derek! Then I guess it boils down to: it looks good, reminds people of any of the sets of three in Buddhism, the big three branches of Buddhism, and kind of looks like the letters DhO : )

I remember it changing at one point but I haven't noticed it recently (Since last software update?) It used to have the eye and the Buddha head flame too, I think. Then again I'm a masochist who more often then not pulls the site up on a phone, so maybe it just doesn't display correctly on mobile.

Yes, it changes. If anyone is interested in submitting more logos for consideration in the rotation, let me know!

Thanks,
