HEX SIGNS

 

IMGP1742

This is one of the Hex Signs that I photographed that was hand painted on a Barn Wall.  It means Love in a symbol.

From the little that I know about the Hex Signs, each design has a specific meaning.  There are a number of them, but what each one stands for I don’t know.  These Hex Signs were created by the PA Dutch and German Immigrants that once lived in the County.  They could be found on the sides of Barns that dotted the country side.  There are still a few that remain, but not many exist.  You may find more of these if you visit Lancaster County where allot of the PA Dutch & Amish people live.

Thanks for reading/commenting/liking
