I got that email with all the pictures from this guy. I didn't even realize the quattrefoil! I always thought our founders made it up until I was sitting in a church for a concert and got all excited cuz there were tons of quattrefoils!

I think it's bigger in Europe, and I know if you read the history book they say there are more in French-inspired parts of New Orleans.

That sidewalk drawing is amazing!

I saw lots of quatrefoils in Europe, usually on churches or other religious buildings. I tried to take pictures of all the quatrefoils I saw. Someday when I have a scanner, I'll post all the pics.

Italy and Spain have lots of them too, I believe....

While I don't have a picture, I used to work at Chili's, and the tiled tables have tons of quatrafoils all over them!

So I'm quoting a really old, old post, but...

Last night my roommate and I went to Chili's, and looking down at the table I thought of this thread and took a picture of the tiles close up with my phone... My roommate looked at me rather strangely. It didn't really make any more sense to her when I told her that it was Phi Mu's symbol and there was this thread... and then I trailed off because I realized I was talking about GC in real life again.

i also forgot to mention that in coconut grove, fl there are lions and a quatrefoil fountain, and for some reason a lot of the houses around our campus have them all over the place, it makes us all smile when we are driving by.

I always thought that was a myth. Is it?

^^^ Yeah, I'm gonna have to guess myth on this one too. He may have married a Phi Mu but I doubt that she influenced the décor of Chili's. The quatrafoil is seen in lots of Spanish architecture. Just look to KC's premier shopping district. "The Plaza" is modeled after Seville, Spain and also contains lots of quatrafoil fountains and mosaics.
