I was at the Decatur Farmer’s Market (local organic stuff every Wednesdays at Church and Commerce) yesterday and one of the sellers had on a hat with this symbol on it:

I mentioned that it was interesting, and he started telling me about how it is the symbol of a Hindu god named Jagannath… which is also the word that “juggernaut” is derived from because of this ceremony:

The english word juggernaut means “a force regarded as unstoppable, that will crush all in its path.”
