I'm sure you simply rounded these off to the nearest "branch", but for those 
that are not familiar with the klingon, the three sections of chan-'ev-tIng are

acting as a compass rose.  Maybe that's why we sometimes see a red/fire circle 
in the background.  I wonder how this fits into klingon culture/mythology.
