Hey guys im new to this website and first of all i would just like to say ive had a good look around the site and it really is very interesting with
some good topics and some really good Pro/Con arguments for lots of views,beliefs and opinions. So i just decided to join so i could post a thread or
reply to this Halo topic which caught my eye,being a avid halo and xbox360 fan.
Anyway like i said i looked around this site and i saw this topic and thought it would be a great place to just tell someone about the symbols i found
in Halo ODST and Halo reach if people didnt already notice them anyway. I never saw any comments about it here, so i assume it is so obvious you dont
even mention it or didn't consciously associate these symbols at the time. I sure didnt for a long time ive played halo for years and ive only just
started noticing the symbols , whether that is because i was purposely looking for them or not , im not sure. I seen a few comments on here suggesting
sometimes the best place to hide something is in plain sight.Right under your nose,so to speak.
Anyway the first symbol is a symbol used in the Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST and the Halo Reach game, as the symbol for the Office of Naval Intelligence ONI
for short the symbol jumped out at me at once, it is a black and white, triangle or pyramid, with a circle around the outside and 2 circles in the
middle, the circle on the outside bears the words " Office of Naval Intelligence" At the top of the triangle are the letters UNSC. UNSC in halo stands
for United Nation Space Command , but UNSC really stands for United Nations Security Council.Also thought i would just mention this symbol is the only
picture on the front of the Halo 3 ODST user manual, and is littered across the last few halo games.
The second symbol is the older ONI symbol with is even more obvious than the first symbol it shows ( IMO ) a large winged humanoid, with 2 dots under
the wings. that is sitting ontop of a circle, and in the circle is a large triangle, the tip at the topmost point of the circle, inside this triangle
is a single eye, eyebrow included. on the out side of the triangle are 4 smaller triangles, 2 to the left , 2 to the right and under the triangle are
3, five pointed stars. at the bottom of the circle is a scroll(wrong word im sure) with the words "Office of Naval Intelligence"
The link for these first 2 symbols are pictures of both these symbols from the website halo.wikia the address is
the third symbol is very similar to the second symbol in fact is is nearly the same except lacking the eye,the 5 triangles and the 3 stars. also you
can make out clearer that the figure is sitting on a planet not just a circle. the picture i have for this is not great quality as i had to take it
myself as a screenshot from Halo Reach whilst in theatre mode. I took the symbol from Kats armour, Kat is one of Noble team , on of the UNSC, ONI
Spartans. all of these Spartans wear this emblem on their armour.
link will take you to my own bungie.net profile page just check the photo named OWL ONI.
if you compare symbol 2 and symbol 3 you will see what i mean.
It was whilst looking at symbol 2 and 3 ( i first noticed with the 3rd one but it is probably easier to spot on the second ) i noticed if you look at
the symbol from where the dot under each wing is it really ( IMO ) does look like a owl, or owls face.
I mention this as i know whist sort of looking around this site and just even looking on youtube that the symbol of a triangle,with or without a eye,
a single eye on its own and a owl seem to all be connected in symbolism.
im sure there would be lots more if i looked around and poked around more, i mean i already found the same symbols in the game on the floor and on
buildings etc, but there are others too like small triangles with a single dot in the centre . so thats my first post here anyway, if anybody would
like to comment on what i have found please do, im sure ive missed lots more out there on the games. but i didn't really see anything in this
Peace - Out John
