840 8th Avenue

There is a crest on the facade of this building directly over the 8th Avenue entrance.  Can anyone tell me what this crest represents?

Re: 840 8th Avenue

Built in 1925 as a WMCA-presently an apartment house. What I find even more interesting is the Pyramid roof of the Worldwide Plaza building across the street.
