And what I was thinking is that one of the founding Hokage was an Uzumaki, and that the spirals all around the village were his design. Maybe a consolation prize for being the Second Hokage instead of the First, since the Second looks more like Naruto.
What did the first part have to do with the second part of your sentence?

And, the Hokage's order has nothing to do with ability, i.e. the Shodaime (1st Hokage) is not necessarily better than the 2nd, like how the first President of the United States/King of England/Emperor of China is/was not necessarily better than whoever the current holder is.

Are the 1st & 2nd Hokage brothers? There was nothing mentioned in the manga, but maybe in that Naruto Special book that everyone but me seems to have...

Sarutobi calls them brothers once. He doesn't go into them being related, and neither do the Anbu sitting at the sidelines watching the fight and explaining things like a narrator. He could have used the word in a much different way.

Whereas Tsunade being the First's grand-daughter is explained quite thoroughly.

What I meant was that maybe the First or Second Hokage was of the Uzumaki family, and thus related to Naruto. And since the Second Hokage looks more like Naruto than the First, and in light of the fact that the First is Tsunade's grandfather, maybe he was an Uzumaki, and his "consolation prize" for being named the Second instead of the First was to have his crest become the Leaf's symbol.

Sorry if it seemed confusing, but the "consolation prize" idea was a small joke. Guess I'll need to water down my humor.

the symbol came from an actual leaf, as Iruka said "Our symbol was created from this exercise (ataching a leaf to ur forhead with chakra)"

The spiral, I mean. Sure, the spiral helps focus chakra in control exercises, but you see the same symbol all over Konoha, on people's clothing, in seals, and of course on Naruto's stomach.
