Always found it supremely amusing that they chose a pretzel to be the symbol of the Constellation.
I'm not sure that's what it is. Actually, this symbol "&" has its calligraphic root in the latin word "et" (=and). The way feek61 has presented the Constellation insignia, I now - and for he first time - see an "A" in the upper half and a "d" in the lower one, forming the latin word "ad" meaning "to".

"Ad astra" seems like the perfect phrase for a ship named "Constellation".
