Atari logo which was created by George Opperman

The Atari symbol was designed by George Opperman in 1972 or 1973.[3] The Atari logo, later described as a "Fuji" (as in Mount Fuji in Japan), looks like the letter "A", and was meant to represent the game Pong, with "two opposing video game players with the center of the Pong court in the middle."
