The symbol of the republican party- an elephant with stars… does anyone know when the stars were inverted, and why? Or at least the official reason…

thanks- I am in uk, so I missed this when it happened...

Well you could say they were inverted...but I've always seen them as tilting to one side. Different perspectives I suppose.

I thought I would post an example- there are actually more differences than I thought... the direction the elephant is facing, the colours, and the ways the stars point have all been reversed... so when was this, and why?
then;

now;

The elephant now faces the right, and the stars are tilted, usually taken as meaning 'in motion' or 'in action'.

You may want to run a few searchs on ATS and PTS, because I know there have been a number of posts about the donkey and elephant political symbols. I don't have links available for you, but I'm positive there are threads because I remember somebody implying that the inverted stars in the one example of the symbol meant that republicans are devil-worshippers.

Capt. King, I'm from Kentucky. In our state, on the election ballot, the Republic Party is represented by a Log Cabin as in Abraham Lincoln. The Dems on the same ballot are represented by a standing rooster. The Communist Party USA by a hammer and sickle. The Socialist Workers party by crossed hammers. There are other parties typically on the ballot. The Prohibitionist, and the newer Libertarians and Henry Wallace Progressives, the States rights Party in 1948, George Wallace’s American Party and so on. Someone in Ky assigns an emblem for each party, I suppose they check it out with the party’s representatives.

By the bye, in the US, the Communist Party has been on the ballot for many years. They polled about 145,000 votes in 1932. Their high water mark. The Socialist Party of Norman Thomas polled 600,000 votes that same year, also their high water mark. As we Yanks are often criticized from around the world, we really have just one political party here, with two right wings. A right wing and a far right wing.
