Flag of Nunavut/Olympic logo
NPR has a good article on the origins of the 2010 Olympics. The symbol borrowed heavily from the rock stacks called an inukshuk. They were apparently used to mark a good spot for hunting or fishing. In my experience with rock stacking, they have always meant as a marker or call it ancient tagging. Sort of like saying: "I was here" or "this is the trail" or "cool spot".
