Letter: Lima using pagan symbol

What is the symbolism on the railroad overpass on East Vine Street and the I-75 overpass on State Route. 309?

It’s a left-facing crescent moon with stars on the left and some kind of markings under or near the moon. The symbol is possibly most recognizable (in both this form and with a single star) as a symbol of the Islamic faith. It. first appeared in the carvings left to us by the Sumerian culture — possibly the oldest civilization that ever lived on our planet. The symbol occurs throughout history as being symbolic of a specific God or (more commonly) Goddess.

The significance of the moon has obvious pagan connotations.
