I think that's what they used instead of the swastika in bloodrayne.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Well, I don't know how that commercial is supposed to persuade me to buy their shoes. Then again, if I found them in the shoe store, I'd probably check them out. lol UGH!

The triple running leg image was a common design on hoplite shields in the 6th & 5th cc. BCE.  Here's a representation by the Berlin Painter on a volute krater.  https://www.artres.com/C.aspx?VP3=ViewBox_VPage&VBID=2UN365UIOQE3R&IT=ZoomImageTemplate01_VForm&IID=2UNTWA00NNG&PN=1&CT=Search&SF=0

The second link is a modern reconstruction of such a shield.  https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/military/armor/greek-hoplite-shield-model-a
