There are a few fan theories out there linking certain symbols to house sigils. The swirl itself shows up a few times in the show -- probably most importantly when the children of the forest made (is that the right word?) the night king. The knight king's army also appears to be marching in the formation of the Stark's direwolf sigil when breaching the wall.Is it coincidence that the shape used in the kid Umber’s death and the very first scene in the first episode (and repeated a few times since) looks identical to the Targaryen sigil?
My guess is that the the swirl and dragon similarities are coincidental -- there are a lot of sigils that have geometric or other similarities. But it's GOT, and we're all going to be wrong more than we're right when all is said and done, so who knows?
