Wikipedia definition
2. TomoeA tomoe, also 鞆絵, and ともヱ in its archaic form, is a Japanese abstract shape described as a swirl that resembles a comma or the usual form of a magatama. The origin of tomoe is uncertain. Some think that it originally meant tomoe, or drawings on tomo, a round arm protector used by an archer, whereas others see tomoe as stylized magatama. It is a common design element in Japanese family emblems and corporate logos, particularly in triplicate whorls known as mitsudomoe .
