The four rings represent the 1932 merging of four previously independent car companies Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. They called themselves AutoUnion, until they brought back the Audi name.

Hardly copying the 3 pointed star or the roundel.
So why didn't they use 4 triangles or 4 squares? The 3 pointed star and Roundel pre date 1932. A bit of a coincidence that of all the shapes in the world, square, rectangle, star etc., they happened to choose a "circle", being in use by BMW and Benz.
