Mystery Solved

Do you know what this symbol stands for?

Well for the last year and a bit I've been trying to figure out what it is. It's not like you can google something like this, do you type in a desription of what it looks like?(when is google sketch coming).

I kept seeing this image as a decal on rear windows of cars. I later noticed that these car were mostly driven by women. Was it possibly some symbol for lesbians, the new pink triangle? I don't know, I never came across anyone getting into their car that had the logo, so I couldn't ask. I only saw it on parked cars or while driving. I pride myself on my branding knowledge, not nowing what this symbol meant was eating me up inside everytime I saw it.

This past Saturday I finally found out what the damn symobol meant, I saw a girl with the logo on her shirt and right beside it...ROXY. ROXY, c'mon...I can't believe I didn't know that. Roxy is the women's division of QUIKSILVER, who make snowboards as well as clothing.

To add further insult to injury the ROXY logo is actually two QUIKSILVER logos put together. How did I not see this before?

Thats the funniest thing ever... I was wondering what that was too a few months ago.. I also noticed that the cars were driven by women. I was sure I figured it out a few months ago so a told my wife it was a Gang Symbol. The Pink Diamond Heart Gang (I made that up). She ask a girl freind at her work and she told her it was Roxy right away... So much for the Pink Diamond Heart Gang.. You should have known since your into snowboarding... I at least have that to fall back on.
