Going back to a political cartoon in 1874 and possibly even earlier, the elephant has long been a symbol of the Republican Party. Cartoonist Thomas Nast was probably the one responsible for making the elephant mascot take root and remain in American politics, using it repeatedly in his cartoons to symbolize the Republican Party.
Made of pewter in the USA, this lapel pin comes with a red, white, and blue ribbon backing that not only adds a patriotic flair but also highlights the mascot's distinctly American origin and identity.
