A decade ago, my husband and I made the jump from living on the outskirts of Philadelphia to a city known for its nightlife.
I had just finished my undergraduate degree in marketing, and I was excited about opening up a new career as a publicist.
But when I showed up at a nightspot in the heart of the city, I couldn’t stop thinking about the signs I had seen along the way.
A year and a half later, I’ve spent hours thinking about them, and even more hours thinking back to those times.
The signs that helped me get to where I am today.
The first sign I saw when I was 15 was this little circle of blue that appeared on a street sign.
It was like a symbol of hope, or perhaps the opposite of hope.
I was thrilled.
The next sign I noticed was a neon green sign with an upside down arrow that made it look like a heart.
I immediately wanted to go inside, but my parents wouldn’t let me.
I remember thinking, What the heck is that?
The next day, we got a new sign.
This one featured an arrow that was upside down, and it was all the more confusing.
What the hell is that?!?
I had no idea what I was looking at.
And that’s when it hit me.
Those little circles had a lot of symbolism to them.
What did that symbol mean?
What was the meaning behind the signs?
My friends and I would later learn that signs were a major part of Philadelphia’s history.
The city had an ancient system of signs, which are often seen as a symbol for the city.
I think the first sign in Philadelphia was actually an upside-down arrow that said, I am Philadelphia.
That’s how we know Philadelphia is a city.
But in the early 1900s, a new kind of sign started appearing along the Penn Central Railroad tracks, and the symbols became more and more prominent.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that the Penn City Sign became the symbol of Philadelphia.
Today, we see Penn City signs everywhere, but it’s the Penn sign that stands out.
In the 1920s, Penn City sign was a little yellow dot on a railroad track that spelled out the city’s name.
It still stands today.
As Philadelphia’s population grew, so did its symbol.
A sign in the 1930s featured a heart that appeared upside down and the words “Honeybee”.
A sign with a heart and a star in the 1950s featured an upside arrow and the city name, “Pittsburgh.”
And in the 1960s, an upside star and a heart were the only symbols that made up the Pennsylvania State Seal.
But after the Great Depression, the symbols started to change.
The Penn City seal became the state seal.
In fact, the symbol is now considered part of the state.
The symbol is also used as a state seal in Pennsylvania and New York.
It’s not the only state symbol to change over the years, however.
Other symbols that are now associated with Philadelphia include: the star on the Pennsylvania flag, the stars in the sky over Pennsylvania, and Penn City on the Penn State flag.
And even in Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania has a lot to do with its symbol: the first state seal was placed there by Governor James A. Schoenborn in 1791.
There are two other state seals in Pennsylvania: the state flag, and a state flagpole that has Pennsylvania’s flag in its middle.
Pennsylvania also has a number of other symbols that symbolize the state: the “state flag” and “Pennsylvania seal”.
So even if you don’t live in Pennsylvania or Pennsylvania state, it’s important to learn more about the symbols that have come and gone in our state over the decades.
You can find a lot more information about Pennsylvania’s symbols on our state seal website.
The State of Pennsylvania is home to over 5,000 counties, each with its own official seal and colors.
But Pennsylvania has also had a number the symbols, such as the stars on the state’s flag, Pennsylvania seal and state sealpole, as well as the Pennsylvania state seal itself.
Here’s a list of the symbols you can find in Pennsylvania.
The symbols of Pennsylvania state are listed alphabetically, and each county has a different symbol.
So you can learn about the different symbols by looking up the county name.
