Why a Hexagon?

A Hexagon is one of the nature's strongest building blocks. We see it in the representation of atomic structures, the community of a beehive, and the individuality of each snowflake.

The six attributes of Division II all add to the Division II experience equally and are interdependent. So, a hexagon is used as a quick graphic representation of the relationship between all attributes and is the graphical theme of the new Division II looks.
