The Omphalion pattern, the circular design seen printed, was inspired from the floor of the Hagia Sophia where, historically, it was thought to mark the spot where Byzantine emperors were crowned during the coronation ceremony.
An omphalos dates back to Ancient Greece, the word ὀμφᾰλός (omphalós) means "navel". Among the Ancient Greeks, it was a widespread belief that this was the center of the world.
