Regarding the embelm of the General Staff - I was not going to belittle the emblem suggesting that it is an abstract representation. However, I am wandering what the "golden" lines in the white disk would mean - if anything.
Do they maybe represent a landscape (say with mountains to the hoist...) also, is there some influence from the precolumban American art visible in the pattern?
The overall look of the emblem in the disk looks remotely similar to the "pictograms" of old Mexican cultures - though I have knowlege of them only from very unreliable sources - like action movies and computer games.
