It has a lot of features of the VMS script: it has curly corners such as many of the VMS letters (P, F) for example:

The Bowen knot must have existed before William Shakespeare (1564 1616) manufactured his variant on this ‘knot’:

When used as a symbol (⌘), an ordinary Bowen knot is known as Saint John’s Arms.

Apple
The Command key (⌘), also historically known as the Apple key,  pretzel key, or meta key, is used on Apple Keyboards as symbol of ‘command’. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_key

This symbol is called valknute in Scandinavia.
In swedisch: Sevärd, translation: worth seeing (..?)

From this the Three interlocking traingles symbol is derived probably.
