I was only behind him for a few seconds before the stop light turned green, so I didn't have enough time to pull out my cellphone and take a photograph, but the roundel with the coat of arms on it on his left rear bumper was definitely this design:
The car wasn't one of those favored by government agencies here in the U.S., so I'm assuming that the driver doesn't really work for the C.I.A., but is more likely a relative of a "spook" (someone who works for "The Agency"), or maybe just a fan.
Besides, if the driver really did work in intelligence, they probably wouldn't advertise it so openly, right?
Anyway, it was a fun bit of heraldry to run across on my daily commute to work, and I just had to share.

Hitlers roundel on his hat is same roundel as c.i.a._.ReplyDelete
No, it isn't. The roundel on German WWII (and WWI, for that matter) military hats is red in the center, surrounded by a white ring, which is itself surrounded by a black ring. It looks nothing like anything used by the CIA. See, e.g., https://www.reddit.com/r/ww2/comments/5o14am/why_does_hitlers_hat_have_a_raf_roundel_on_it/Delete
