Roy and the salamander

Aside from being cute the other thing that really drew me to this character was the symbol of a salamander inside his alchemy circle. Flipping through some of my books on mythical creatures I stumbled into this little bite: "Although the Salamander is known to those in magick as a creature of the Element of Fire, it was also known to medieval peoples as the alchemist's lizard."

So it got me wondering, is there a web site out there that addresses the symbolism in FMA? Particularly the circles?

(another reason was the triangles within Roy's circle, and the 3 flame-points on the little flame on it: i am obsessed with the #3 and triangles... cause they have 3 points)
