Well you’re starting off with a false premise; not all space agencies use a variation on that symbol. The European Space Agency doesn’t, the British National Space Centre doesn’t, the Colombian Space Commission doesn’t, the German Aerospace Centre doesn’t, the Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial doesn’t, the Israeli Space Agency doesn’t, the Italian Space agency doesn’t, and so on and so forth.
Of the ones you’ve listed not all of them really show a variation on that symbol, I’d say the Canadian, Malaysian, Bulgarian and Mexican fall into this category.
So if you cherry pick logos that share a somewhat similar feature I’m sure you’ll see a pattern but clearly it’s nowhere near as significant as that.
