Mold Book Name: Elephant, Republican
Notes: Almost all of the original flags are missing. In 1956, the flag was pennant-shaped, marked with a capital R, and attached to a short stick which was glued to the elephant’s trunk. In 1967, the flag was glued to the elephant's foot.
The mold was revised in 2000. The new mold has several differences; most noticeably, more detailed ears, an open mouth, and more wrinkle detail.
