What does the symbol on Ed's jacket mean?

I know he uses the same symbol thats on Izumi's chest but Im not sure if they ever explained it (or atleast I've never heard what it was). So does anyone have any ideas on it or the actual meaning? :smileyindifferent:

It's a flamel, a symbol associated with Nicholas Flamel, an actual real-life alchemist who was rumored to have created a Philosopher's Stone.

The flamel also stands for victory over the devil, as there is a snake draped out over the cross, its pretty sweet

I sewed that symbol on the arm of my leather jacket once.

That's cool to know what it means.

 

Also, it kinda' reminds me of the insignia Boba Fett has. :smileytongue:

Looks more purple in the new show to me...  But then again, the new show also puts only 4 notches in Al's neck-grill rather than the original 5, so maybe I shouldn't trust it.

the insignia is a mythosaur skull, an extinct species on the planet mandalore.
