DAR Insignia

The graphic featured at the top-left of the page, is the DAR Insignia. The golden wheel represents a spinning wheel, the platinum or white gold distaff carries the colors of the society (blue and white) and the stars represent the original thirteen colonies.

"Our emblem is a golden wheel,
banded with deepest blue.
Each shining spoke tipped with a star,
the distaff shining through;
The only jewel in the world
that money cannot buy
without such proof of ancestry
as no one can deny."

"The hub: Each loyal daughter's heart.
Each spoke: A thought of those from whom we part.
The tie: A noble life well rounded out.
Each star: A deed of kindness as we go about.
Each flaxen thread: A cord of love to bind us closer day by day.
The distaff: The rod of love to guide us all the way. "
