The Greening of the New Year
This is really nice, olive-drab, ball cap from Weatherproof™. It's made with a microfibre shell (very soft to the touch), and lined with black microfleece. very warm to the skull.
The pin on the crown is a brotherhood of Saint Andrew's pin. The X represents the way Andrew was crucified at his martyrdom. You see the same X in the Scottish national flag, as St. Andrew in Scotland's patron saint. It also shows up in the british Union Jack, where St. George's and St. Andrew's crosses are superimposed upon each other, signifying the unification of England and Scotland.
The Confederate battle flag also bore St. Andrew's cross. A common trait for the losers of civil wars?
