What does your favorite sweatshirt say?
This sweatshirt says Schuylkill County. The design features three symbols of Schuylkill County: a lamb with barley sheaves and four diamonds.
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 lamb on your sweatshirt" they will ask.
"The lamb is a symbol of the Moravians, who were first to settle in Schuylkill County," you will explain.
You could also point out that the four diamonds on the top represent coal. Northeastern PA has a long history of anthracite coal mining.
"What is with the barley sheaves on the sides?", they might ask.
"Barley is involved in beer making. Schuylkill County, where I am from, is home to the oldest brewery in America," you will answer.
The colors themselves are symbolic. Black and yellow are the colors of Saxony, the state in Germany where the Moravians emigrated from. Also, black for coal and yellow for the barley and beer making.
You make a connection that would have otherwise just slipped away.
