    Please I appreciate your comments about this question, because this logo is part of the band's identity and also this one defines them. Cheers everybody!!!

The "Majesty Symbol" (as it is commonly known) is the letter "M" of "MAJESTY" in a stylized lettering, and is based on the symbol used by Mary Queen of Scots.

It can be seen on all the album covers, as well as most of the discs themselves.

Charlie Dominici claims to have been the one creating the symbol, by using each letter of his last name to create the stylized version - but as can be shown by the actual stitchings by Mary Queen of Scots, the differences between the old original symbol and the current Dream Theater symbol is miniscule. While the symbol may have been chosen for the fact that it does enable one to spell out Dominici fully, it certainly was not created by Dominici as claimed.

The logo is all the letters of Domincci mashed together. Charlie Dominicci was the first singer before James Labrie.
