We are excited to announce these Official Bellingham Flag Keychains made for us by the one and only Bellingham Flag co. These metal enamel key ring accessories are the perfect gift for any hamster, as it's symbolism go far deeper than the surface level colors:
The two stars on the flag represent the the two coastal Salish tribes: Lummi and Nooksack while the three wavy lines stand for "noisey waters," the translation of "Whatcom" from Chief Whatcom of the Nooksack. When the flag is flown vertically, these wavy lines also become a depiction of Whatcom Falls. The Four green stripes represent the four original towns of Bellingham: Whatcom, Sehome, Bellingham, and Fairhaven. The blue half circle symbolizes Bellingham Bay which unites the four towns.
Keychain measures 3 inches in total length, from ring to end of charm. Charm alone measures .75 inches long by .5 inches wide. Comes fitted with a silver 1 inch key ring.
