    Lynn is it..? I was hoping to get some info regarding a variant of this symbol if you might know. It’s nearly the same as these three similar circles, each one fitting inside the the outer circle from itself with out intersecting. The only difference from the one shown vs the one I’m curious of is imagine two lines from the inner circle at its most bottom point passing through the middle circle breaking the full circle at the point of intersection and continuing to the outer circle where it has also broken the full connection of the outer circle at the intersecting points. (I know confusing...) to make it easier to understand think of this symbol shown but now cut a path from outside the outermost circle’s boundary and make a “pathway” in to the innermost circle’s core. Hope these explanations help, and thanks for any info you may have....
