They used to make engines for airplanes, so it's a propeller.

Yeah BMW used to make plane engines and the roundel symbolizes the white propeller flying through the blue sky

Not that I liked the movie or anything but...there was this explanation in "Finding Forrester" with Sean Connery. The genius main character kid was asked to "stay away" from some guy's bimmer when he was trying to complement the guy on it and instead got b!tched by the kid once he explained the whole history of BMW and the design of the roundel. The kid finished by saying "but I bet you already knew that being as how you lease one and all". Nice scene...but weak movie.
