New Ball Cap

Eight-Pointed Star Ball Cap

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! A dream of mine has come true. I designed a new ball cap, in collaboration with Young’s Screenprinting and Embroidery, and it just came in (ahead of schedule)! And I have to say that I’m pretty pleased with the result.

Green, Blue, and White are the colors of the new Kent City Flag. The eight-pointed star featured on the ball cap (and also in the middle of the flag) recalls a symbol from the history of the city. This eight-pointed star was sewn into quilts that served as a guide symbol for people running away from slavery in the Deep South of the United States, during the first half of the 19th Century. More specifically, it represented the North Star, guiding people on their way to freedom in Canada via secret stops along the “Underground Railroad.” As such, it’s a powerful symbol that I’m proud to wear today.

The new ball cap represents the City of Kent, a community that prides itself on being a Safe Haven for those in need, and ultimately Freedom. We need these things as much today as we did in the 19th Century, so I’m excited by this low-key way to honor such a vision and mission. For our community, for the people of faith living in this community, and for my household.
