Can anyone tell me what the symbol in the DLR (Deutsches Zentrum fuer Luft- und Raumfahrt, the German Aerospace Center) logo represents?

I asked DLR and they answered as follows (I am trying my best to translate):
The DLR logo was designed in the 70s to show the matter of "flying" under an artistic concisely view. It shows two crossed wings that additionally can be seen in a 3D perspective and could represent a plane or also a satellite.

Does anyone know why the DLR logo appears on the packaging for the German DVD set of "From The Earth To The Moon"? (The NASA one doesn't!)
