That's because it is the Colt Rampant Pony! The photo is of the Colt factory dome in Hartford, CT.

Here is the old Colt factory's distinctive Blue Onion Dome, with the stars, just off the mixmaster of I-84 and I-91. You can see the trademark bronze colt rampant at the top and a pistol on the frieze.

Thanks for that info Canebrake, I learned something new today. I would have never guessed that dome was actually on Colts building...it does look a tad outta place, but cool nonetheless.
