Why is his chest symbol a lightning bolt? He's clearly faster than lightning....

His symbol should be nothing because you can't even see him when he moves.

What symbol would you give the Flash if you could redesign his symbol?

Well, the lightning bolt is the symbol of all Flashes. 
 
And it's a "____ of lightning"

Because the Speed Force tends to take the form of lightning, and it's the fastest element that can be represented by a symbol?
