This kerchief was created by Jack Frost Design, the firm responsible for the Republican National Committee logo and graphics for the Ford and Reagan campaigns. The elephant as a symbol of the Republican Party was a product of the imagination of cartoonist Thomas Nast and first appeared in Harper's Weekly in 1874.
