Smash Bros. Icon: What The Hell Is It?

Super Smash Bros. iconDo you recognize this image?  It's the Super Smash Bros. icon.  You'll find it in places such as the "O" in the word "Bros." on the Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl title screens, the life meter icon for Smash-specific characters such as Master Hand & Sandbag, and other such places where the more traditional and familiar character icons (Mario's mushroom, Kirby's warp star, Link's Triforce, etc.) don't apply.  Lately I've found myself wondering what, if anything, this logo is supposed to represent.  Nothing about it seems very "smashy" to me.  So, I ask you: what the hell is it?  Does it mean anything?
