I want to know what that symbol is, the triangle sitting at the base of the health bar http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
The symbol above the M in MEMORY
I really like the symbol and even tought of tattooing it on my forearm. I'm not a nerd at all(no offence)so i dont wan't it to be associated with the game, just something cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
So i just wanna know if it means anything and if other has allready done a tattoo with that symbol?
I've seen guys with The A symbol but not this one, it doesnt even seem very popular :

Assassin's Creed! *Katching* <-hidden blade killing sound http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

in the game the symbol is associated with how well you are in and out of cover or blending into your environment.

white - well hidden
yellow - be cautious/not that hidden
red - you have been seen/ not hidden at all

I think more people want the symbol the Assassins use than the logo of Abstergo. Though there is a real estate company called Addler Group or something that has a similar symbol, except theirs is green. @_@

I'm asking if their is such a symbol in real life with a meaning not in the game -.-'
Are u sure that's the symbol of Abstergo!? :S

Yeah ur right about the real estate company kaxen... but the one i want is slightly extended and i've allready drawn a tribal as a background.. hard to explain but it looks sugooii and not big at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Am i the only one that the triangle is cooler then the A logo?

u can ask the tatoo guy to modify the triangle a bit so it will retain its atributes of 3 bars creating a triangle but have a different touch to it. maybe make it more curly, maybe more detailed.

as is the triangle looks nice as a tiny logo but i think that once it enlarged its simplicity and large black boxes will create a boring tatoo if its anything bigger than an inch over inch.

i think it needs more details in it that penetrate it inside or detail its siluette on the outisde.
forgive my incoherence. english aint may language and its hard to put my thoughts into words...

i'm kinda good at drawing, paterns like tribals is my forte so i have already modified it to my liking and its about 3 cm, about 1,2 tums if its the same thing as inches ^^ lol

you know, just like you, I've always wondered if The symbol in the game is the real derivative/character for "abstergo" (the term)

I'm come to accept that, even if it's not true.

I've read that abstergo means cleanse.
If it does mean that it would be kinda cool having a tattoo symbolizing purity http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

From today on it's like that! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Ofc if anyone doesn't agree http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

@KinkySeaturtle: Well, Abstergo does indeed mean to "cleanse", but just keep in mind that the symbol was most likely arbitrarily chosen by Ubisoft.
