I acquired this Bromley patch a while ago and am not quite sure about the meaning of its symbols. Here's what I figure so far:

Upper left: could that be Bromley's pig-dog?

Upper right: hmm...Fred Pabst was known as "the snow farmer;" did he raise chickens?

Lower right: easy enough--Bromley's southern exposure means sunny slopes; the sun has been a long-time Bromley symbol

Lower left: looks like an ice screw, but is it an upside-down T-bar clumsily inserted into the patch's remaining blank space?

Thanks,
Woody

Maybe the pig stands for the famous annual Bromley Pig Roast which is put on by the Volunteer Fire Dept.

Could be any or all of those things mentioned above. But once you delve into the symbolism, it seems to fit the Pabst personae. The boar's head, because it is only a head and not an entire body, represents hospitality. Considering that Pabst is a Saxon name, the cock probably represents perseverence. Hand tools represent hard work and dependence on Providence to provide a good harvest. If this is an ice tool, it would make sense in this context. The sun represents splendour, glorious beauty -- and also fits the whole "sun mountain" thing in this case. It appears that a lot of thought went into this crest.

A "bromley" is a sort of wild meadow.

whoa, hey, hold on there...just the fruits of a little research, curious after seeing the patch.

Not a "know-it-all" !! To prove it, I'm going to get in on the Magic threads, make typos, use poor diction, and mis-quote scripture.

Another possibility on the symbols...one of the runs is Corkscrew...perhaps that tool is a corkscrew?
