White square kerchief printed in red and blue with Republican party logo of elephant. Inscribed: "(C) Republican National Committee" and "Jack Frost Design."
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.
