  • Why are the elephant's stars upside down?

    A question about the Republican's icon was brought to my attention recently and through my efforts I've been unable to find and actual answer.

    The three stars on the current icon used by the GOP national office have been 'upside down' ie a point aims downward rather then upward as you find in almost all other flags and such. They've been that way for the past 4 years or so. All other GOP offices have since followed suit. No one can point to any reason for the change.

    This poorly formatted website came up in my search it has a short article down the right side.

    My favorite answer so far came from the freerepublic.com forums 'They're not upside-down, they are leaning to the right'

    I found this............."The logo was applied for in 1993 and is a registered trademark. It is identified and clearly stated as being forward leaning... as the elephant is forward in motion. Not standing still."

        Seems to me the stars could just as easily be backward leaning.

          Flip the image so the stars are what I would consider correct (pointing up), Do you see something different?? other then an upside down elephant?

            Forward is not the first adjective I would use to describe the GOP.
