New Addition: Ivy League Pennants

26/05/2011 § 1 Comment

Was very excited to scoop up two Ivy League pennants on my trip to Brimfield.  Originally flown by knights in the middle ages and still used by warships today to connote their status as commissioned vessels, pennants are also associated with American sports — specifically professional baseball and collegiate teams.  I’m really looking forward to getting these dorm room staples up on the wall and adding a bit of school spirit around the house.
