What does your favorite sweatshirt say?
This sweatshirt says Dauphin County. The design features two symbols of Dauphin County: a dolphin and a fleur-de-lies.
This sweatshirt is a curiosity grabber.
It helps introverts. Just imagine a college student away from home. If you are a college student this will be easy. If you are not a college student then imagine a close relative who is: child, grandchild, niece, or nephew wearing this sweatshirt and another student asks what it says and what does the graphic mean.
“Why is there a dolphin on your sweatshirt?" they will ask.
"I am from Dauphin County in PA. Dauphin is the French word for dolphin," you will explain.
You could go on to mention that Dauphin County was named on March 4th, 1785, to honor Louis-Joseph, Dauphin of France. Louis-Joseph was the first son of king Louis XVI and the heir apparent to the throne of France. Sadly, he died of tuberculosis at the age of seven in 1789.
"What is symbol to the right of the dolphin?", they might ask.
"That is a fleur-de-lis, or stylized lily. It is a symbol of the Dauphin of France. Where I am from, Dauphin County, is named after that," you will answer.
You could point out one more icon on your shirt. The curved blue line in the field of green represents the Susquehanna River. Early settlers lamented it frequent flooding with the phrase "a mile wide and a foot deep".
You make a connection that would have otherwise just slipped away.
