I am coming in late on this, but the text, as already noted, is a letter from the Arabic alphabet. It is the letter "Daad", which is pronounced somewhat like the English letter "D" but heavier. Sorta from back further in the mouth.

No particular meaning in itself, just a graceful shape. A "swan of letters", so to say.

Oh, if the dot above the letter was removed, it would be "Saad". (Not sad but a letter that sounds like a heavy "S".)

Cheers,
