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.

Any specific smell?

Water. Or perhaps a hydrogen symbol.
