Crossword puzzle clue: "The symbol of the Girl Scouts" Answer: "Trefoil"

Me: "What exactly is a trefoil anyways? Besides a cookie, that is."

The answer itself isn't all that interesting ("an ornament or symbol in the form of a stylized trifoliolate leaf") but in the process of looking, I also discoverd this mathworld page with an animated trefoil knots comprised of gears, the origin of the radiation warning symbol, and girl scouts with trefoil tattoos! (No photos, unfortunately.)
