Orion belt is part of North arrow formation

This formation creates an arrow that always points north, so it is used for navigation at night.
Alnitak, Alnilam and Almintaka (Belt)-First arm + the star to the right of Alnitak in straight line will form the second arm.
Now look the nebula M42 & M43 are forming the tail of the arrow.
