Sterling Silver Republican Elephant Charm with Stars and Stripes. Show your patriotic pride with this adorable symbol of the Republican Party! Etched with the emblems of our national flag, this pendant makes a great gift for political junkies and proud voters or a sweet addition to any "keepsake" jewelry collection. But where did the elephant symbol come from? It originated in a cartoon from Harper's Weekly in 1874 which depicted a donkey clothed in a lion's skin, scaring away all the animals at the zoo. One of those animals, the elephant, was labeled "The Republican Vote." From that point on, the elephant has been associated with the Republican Party. Republicans today take pride in having such a strong, intelligent creature as their emblem.
