The Quaker Star
The Quaker "star was first used as a symbol by the London Daily News during the Franco-Prussian War to mark its Fund for the Relief of French Peasantry. Friends at the time were sending food wagons and ambulances to both sides, carrying the British flag on one side and the Red Cross on the other. In November 1870 the London Daily News invited Friends to share its star emblem, thus helping to reduce confusion in a situation where a half dozen emblems were in use. The original star had minor variations in color from that in current use. The present star was adopted by the American Friends Service Committee six months after its founding, in November 1917." - Friends Journal (December 31, 1955)
