About us...

Our Flag

Our  

flag  

(right)  

is  

the  

first  

flag  

of  

the  

Alpenrose  

Schuhplattler  

Verein.  

  

The  

flag,  

handmade  

in

Germany,  

was  

dedicated  

at  

the  

Alpenrose's  

Fahnenweihe  

held  

at  

the  

Lancaster  

Host  

Resort,  

June

30-July 2, 2006.

The  

flag  

design  

depicts  

the  

culture  

and  

traditions  

of  

German  

heritage  

that  

the  

Verein  

strives  

to

uphold;  

the  

reverse  

side  

honors  

the  

rich  

farmland  

of  

Lancaster  

Co.,  

Pennsylvania,  

home  

of  

the

Lancaster  

Liederkranz,  

where  

the

Alpenrose  

Schuhplattlers  

practice  

and  

sponsor  

events.  

  

The  

flag

is considered a visual representation of the Verein.
