The meaning of the new Police Uniform Patch…The Uniform Patch of the Upper Macungie Township Police Department has numerous (symbolic) meanings. The shape of the patch itself is a shield to signify protection of the public. The (calming) French Blue color is symbolic of Police. The center of the patch has the Seal of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Within the Seal is a shield depicting a ship under full sail, a plow and three sheaves of wheat. These symbols represent the importance of commerce, labor, perseverance and agriculture. Atop the shield an eagle proudly symbolizes the state’s sovereignty. The barn and the farm fields represent the rich agricultural history of Upper Macungie Township and its commitment to open space, parks and recreation. The eagle represents American patriotism and the noble police officers who are serving and acting in the best interests of the citizens it serves.
