Item Description

This Golden Cod Design berry red hat is 100% cotton twill, stain resistant with an adjustable closure. A decal is included. The hat features the Golden Cod logo. The Golden/Sacred Cod is a traditional symbol of the New England fishing industry. The Cod was the first export of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the basis of the state’s economy until the Industrial Revolution. Because of the importance of the cod industry, a carving of a painted wooden codfish has hung in the House of Representatives Chamber in the Massachusetts State House in Boston since the early 18th century, as well as on church steeples and above doorways all around New England. GoldenCodDesign chose to put this revered symbol on our high quality clothing so the bearers could proudly show their connection to New England.  However, people across the country have now purchased our hats and ties and belts making the cod more than just a local symbol
