From 1993.06.07 to 2000, US music perfomer Prince Rogers Nelson (born
1958), used as his career name an unpronounceable symbol, replacing the
former denomination "The Artist" (a.k.a. "The Artist, formerly known as
Prince"), which itself replaced the original name "Prince". This artist
is now Prince again.
Following a hazy recollection of this symbol on flags in a Prince clip, I used the symbol I found here and put it in yellow on a purple background. This is how I seem to recall having seen this symbol used in flags, though I might be (quite) away from the truth. For what is worth, the color purple is widely used in the layout of the "artist's"website.

Well, my not so fuzzy recollection of this video (a music clip produced as
if it was a live concert, or a real live concert, I don't really remember)
tells me that the symbol was golden on a white flag, waved proudly by
TAFKAP (The Artist Formerly Known As Prince). The symbol itself was
reflecting light as if it was made of little pieces of glass, I suppose to
give the idea of gold.
