Broad Arrow  n.   The pheon (a bearing representing the head of a Broad Arrow or javelin, with long barbs which are engrailed on the inner edge) was, like the modern mace, carried before royalty by a sergeant-at-arms. It became a royal mark, and was used in Great Britain to denote crown property, being termed the "Broad R,"or "Broad Arrow." One could suppose that the Broad Arrow is one of the oldest "trademarks" still in use for its original purpose. The Broad Arrow was chosen as the logo for the Military Watch Resource due to it's long standing use as the official mark designating British Government issued property. 

"No leader should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no leader should fight a battle simply out of pique. But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again into being; nor can the dead ever be brought back to life. Hence the enlightened leader is heedful, and the good leader full of caution."
