EARTH - In Abstract

Okay, so in the Stargate continuity, Earth is represented by a symbol, an upside down Aleph ("A" without the middle bar) with a little circle above it. In the nuBSG continuity, Earth is represented by, of all things, a song - specifically, a numerical coordinate set inspired by the chords of a song.

For fun and zero profit: If you were a sci-fi writer and you had to come up with an abstract way to represent "Earth", how would you do it?

Be as wacky as you like.

Water. Or perhaps a hydrogen symbol.
