In the 1960s the topic of UFOs was hot and heavy and in New York City there were UFO lectures almost every day! I went to hundreds of lectures and
some were boring and some were utterly interesting to the point of applause at the last word from the speaker. One of the cases I became aware of was
UMMO but I never accepted it as a real event because the photos looked phony and I had seen plenty of phony photos.

airplanes and, sure enough, some were shown taking off, known as the Savoia-Marchetti . As the plane went by the camera you could see the surface of
the underwing and I had a moment of recognition when I saw the symbol and, thankfully, other views of the planes in flight gave me a better view of
the symbol I thought I recognized.
I do not know where the UMMO symbol came from but take a look at the series of photos at this site:
and then compare the symbol on the "UFO" with this one:
