The Symbol Room

Do you speak Flour Sack? A visit to the Symbol Room is like a crash course in the international language of flour-sack symbols. Here you will learn why lions and locomotives are popular motifs as well as ears of corn and mills, and why a camel on a sack from Morocco means the same as a dragon on a Chinese sack. Equipped with this knowledge you will not only be ready for a visit to the Sackotheque – you will also view flour sacks and their symbols in a totally new light.
