Gorgeous silk cockade based on an original American patriotic cockade! Black and white silk ribbon frames a gold-plated pin of George Washington. The pin is removable and can be worn separately.

Dimensions:
Approximately 3" (7.5 cm) across rosette
Streamers are approximately 3" (7.5 cm) long
Pin is gold-plated and 1.25" (3 cm) wide

If you choose, I can put a pin back on this cockade for more convenience.

HISTORY
Our nation's original patriotic cockade was black and white - black for the British house of Hanover and white for the French royal house. In gratitude for France's help in the Revolutionary War, white was added to the traditional British black, creating a uniquely American cockade.

On July 4, 1798, the Philadelphia Centinel stated: "It has been repeatedly recommended, that our citizens wear in their hats on the day of Independence, the American Cockade, (which is a Rose, composed of black ribbon, with a white button, or fastening) and that the Ladies should add to the attraction of their dress...this symbol of their attachment to the government."

Over 60 years later, the black-and-white cockade was revived in the Confederacy as a symbol of another new nation fighting for its independence. Union sympathizers also wore it as the original symbol of the American states' unification.
