This gorgeous cockade is approximately 3" across and comes with a silver-plated pin back.
The Bolivian Republic was proclaimed on August 6, 1825 after 16 years of war. The General Assembly declared [loose translation]: The cockade that the citizens of the Republic will carry will be bicolor, like their flags, that is red between green and a star of gold color in the center. - General Assembly of the Bolivar Republic, Decree, August 17, 1825
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
