Dragon's Eye
The 6 lines of the symbol can be seen in 6 edges of the regular tetrahedron (triangular pyramid), as viewed above one of the vertices.

The Dragon's Eye is an ancient Germanic symbol, according to Rudolf Koch.[1] 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.[2]

Political use[edit]

The dragon's eye is used by the identitarian organization Identity Evropa[3]
