It's just a highly streamlined and stylized yardarm, to which signal halyards are attached...note the flags beneath. In this case, some navgear sensors are also mounted on top.

Thank you sailor john. I saw a picture of that thing on carnival legend and someone said it was called a tallinn i don't know if this is true. Why is it tho that it has those airplane wing like things poking out the sides of the central pole?

Those 'wings' are the yardarms. Look in the first pic and you can clearly see the blocks and halyards for signal flags attached to those 'wings'. Where else could you attach multiple flag halyards???
