My invention relates to emblems or thelike, and includes among its objects and advantages the Provision or an improved emblem having a combination hanger and standing support.
In the accompanying drawing; Figure 1 is a perspective view of the rear face 01' an emblem in accordance with my invention.
Figure 2 is a sectional view along the line 2-2 of Figural.
Figure 3 is a face view oia hanger ring adapted.
to serve as a standing support, .and
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 2 but illustrating the emblem ina standing position.
In the embodiment of the invention selected for illustration, 1- make use of an emblem I0 suitable to-hang on a wall, stand on a table, shelf or r the like.
