What does the Goose Garland trademark represent?
The goose with garland and egg may be shown separately in print but either together or apart they represent a strong faith in God and faith in the value of community. The garland around the goose's neck represents Christmas and may be displayed in various colors. The goose stands over her egg encased with red, white and blue believing in always protecting and loving America.
Why a Goose?
Geese are very loyal to each other and like to use the same nest each year if possible. If a goose’s mate or chicks become sick or injured, he or she will often refuse to leave their side, even if winter is approaching and the other geese in the group are flying south.
Multiple families of geese come together to form a larger group called a gaggle. Geese look out for others in their gaggle. If they are flying and one goose is hurt, some of the other geese will lag behind to look after their injured friend.
Geese are adept fliers who may travel thousands of miles during their yearly migrations. They fly in a characteristic V shape so that the geese in front reduce the air resistance for those behind them, which helps the geese fly about 70 percent farther as a group than they could on their own. The geese rotate from the front to the back when they get tired, and those in the rear honk their encouragement to the leaders. Geese have long memories, and they use familiar landmarks and the stars to navigate during their yearly migrations.
