The Triangle Symbol and the Dragon's Eye

The Dragon's Eye is an isosceles or equilateral triangle pointing downward, with a "Y" in the middle connecting the three points of the triangle together. According to Carl G. Liungman's Dictionary of Symbols, it combines the triangle meaning threat and the "Y" meaning a choice between good and evil

The dragon's eye is a well known symbol of protection, said to protect anyone who recited the incantation to it. The dragon is a universal motif linked to various cultures of humanity for 5,000 years.

The word dragon comes from "derkesthai" (Greek: to glance dartingly) which, in a Hindu tradition, was the hungry look of the very first being when its fiery spirit was born out of the abyss of water. The Dragon's Eye symbol stands for the balance of love, power and wisdom. Triple triangles are associated with the Goddess and the nine Muses." (Source)

The All-Creating Eye

This issue above (May 1987) will be 30 years old the month Alien: Covenant is released to theaters (May 2017). Most likely no connection to Alien: Covenant whatsoever but displayed to show the symbolism common in publications of all kinds.

Good catch on the "Y" symbol being related to the choice between good and evil!

In some of the company's logos, their winged globe symbol is made to look more like a cross between 3 triangles and a Y.

The feathers representing good thoughts, good words, and good deeds is interesting.  Thanks for sharing Ingeneiro :)

This topic has caused me to consider the sacred geometry present in the symbols a little differently.  I didn't notice just how many triangles there are everywhere before this.  We even saw the logo and triangles in David's fingerprint design.

It definitely suggests to me that a lot of thought was put into designing the symbols this way, with the W also being able to be viewed as 3 triangles.  The ancient name for the Y symbol was spelled "waw," so again we can view from the perspective of a W.  You can even sort of get an Alpha symbol out of it, if you invert the symbol.  The hieroglyphs on LV-223 have a number of triangles and an ancient version of the "Y" in them as well.  I'm starting to think the company knew about the Engineers before Shaw made her proposal.  

It's becoming clear Weyland-Yutani's corporate culture, or at least Peter Weyland himself, has some sort of belief system.

Hi friends!

A few more symbols seen on the chip. (AMD))

Ancient symbols. Triangle, Pyramid, etc. - powerful archetypes that affect the mind. The story begins long before the history of Prometheus. Peter Weyland knew for sure.

Interesting indeed about some of the Philosophical/Religious connections and i am sure some of these at least had some thought go into them.

As far as the Triangles though, its one of those things where who knows if these are coincidental or was put there on purpose to make some connections.

Certainly interesting to have a look at them and have rise a few debates from them.

And on the emblem, of course, symbols. The same ancient Sumerian wings.


MemberFacehuggerApr-18-2017 3:11 PM


Well, weyland made out he was dead, but was alive in a suprise twist in prometheus, same for shaw???

great post, anyone notice the way lots of symbology is twisted and inverted within the Alien universe............

The weyland logo, building better worlds, when it actually wants world destroying alien bio weapons........

the space jockey, an egyptian funeral barge, surrounded by a water/mist, that carries you to the afterlife............

The juggernaut, shaped like the egyptian sky goddess nut, which brings life from the sky (life??????)

The xenomorph, The 'perfect' organism, which exterminates everything around it????!!!

Hi Pavell, thank you so much. Great catch on the chip and the Covenant patch does reflect the symbolism as well.


MemberPraetorianApr-18-2017 4:44 PM

"The weyland logo, building better worlds, when it actually wants world destroying alien bio weapons........"

So very correct Babylonxeno.

You are most welcome CarynDelacroix.

"This topic has caused me to consider the sacred geometry present in the symbols a little differently.  I didn't notice just how many triangles there are everywhere before this.  We even saw the logo and triangles in David's fingerprint design."

Thank you for reminding me of that.


MemberDeaconApr-18-2017 5:38 PM


Indeed it was very interesting how the Derelict looked like a Egyptian Funeral Barge, never mind the Babylonian connections with Motifs in the Franchise.

I find it just fitting that with Prometheus they tried to tie in the Ancient Astronaut angle, i find it very interesting that in Real Life we see many shared themes and motifs throughout various ancient cultures as far as Mythos and Religions.

Makes you wander if there is a True Connection

I think the Covenant patch is more reminiscent of the Hebrew Ark of the Covenant with the 2 winged cherubim kneeling and embracing the world between its wings.


MemberFacehuggerApr-18-2017 6:39 PM

The winged globe the Babylonian/Sumerian gods aka Annunaki?


MemberXenomorphApr-18-2017 6:42 PM


winged globe refers to the egyptian winged disk.


MemberPraetorianApr-18-2017 6:49 PM

Great examples Rick

"winged globe refers to the egyptian winged disk"

"I think the Covenant patch is more reminiscent of the Hebrew Ark of the Covenant with the 2 winged cherubim kneeling and embracing the world between its wings."

Thanks Ingeniero

Hey Inge here is some more to add to your thread.

Triangle Numerology

I'm not big on numerology but I am constantly having to work in statistics in my field.  So math is all around me, everyday so figured it might be an interesting read as it kind of relates to your dragons eye.


MemberPraetorianApr-26-2017 7:25 PM

Rick, I just noticed your follow up link above. Thank you sir...will check it out.


MemberPraetorianMay-03-2017 7:36 PM
