Dont have better place to post it and this was on mine mind for quite some time.

It is very trendy ( i must admit that it looks cool ) design, you can see it on everything.

What is the orgin of this symbol ? Or can someone give some old examples of this.

Im just curious. Cookiez and respect for anyone with any information.

peace

The four panel thing comes from coats of arms, maybe it started as a minimalist version of something like that; the non-rotated cross looks kind of boring when it's not outlined.

The shape is called a "saltire," if that helps at all.
