Here I go again with yet another sighting! Has anyone ever stayed at the Hyatt in the Orlando airport? The inside courtyard has two giant quatrefoil fountains!

Last spring I ran into an iron gate made of many quatrafoils (that's a weird looking word) in a random side street in Riga, Latvia. I took about a million pictures and I'm sure people thought I was insane.

For Christmas I'm taking all the quatrafoil pictures that I have taken around the world and putting them in this neat frame for my Mom. I know she's going to love it!

when I found out what the quatrefoil means, it was something that truly took my breath away and made me realize how awesome mary mary martha were!

but for sightings:

at UF, on the college of edu's building there's a quat(at uf we call it the "quat" I know it sounds dirty but it's pretty cute! throw that quat up!)

on a neighborhood near me there's beautiful blue tile quats on the walls.

at epcot in mexico is a massive quatrefoil fountain

ANDDDD the best one to me is that on donald trump's office on the apprentice there were gorgeous neimen marcus 500 dollar quatrefoil mirrors!

the quatrefoil is the most perfect symbol. at first I was disappointed that we didn't have a more known symbol like dg's anchor that you can find on everything! but then I realized how nice it was that only our sorority has it and it's not such a popular mainstream symbol for anyone to wear. I feel like if I see a quatrefoil, there's truly a purpose and meaning behind it. even though phi mu was founded after the symbol was created, I think there's a divine reason we choose such a prolific symbol that has many great meanings around the world. who knows? maybe those people who created have some crazy connection to us all!

How sweet! I LOVE it too and I love that no one else has anything as unique or special.

There is a huge quatrefoil on the side of the Spanish Synagogue in Prague...I went in high school and took a picture of it since I thought it was a pretty building, and when several of my sisters mentioned that there are quatrefoils all over Prague, I went back and looked through my pictures and sure enough, there it was!
I also suspect that the fountain outside of St. Vitus Cathedral is a quatrefoil, but I don't have any overhead pictures to confirm.

I have seen the quatrefoils at Chilis and always wondered if a Phi Mu was involved somehow! ;-) Also, there is a house down the street where I live that has a huge quatrefoil on it- a Phi Mu quatrefoil, definetly... I haven't built up the nerve yet to ask whether the lady there is a Phi Mu but I will someday!

I live in San Antonio. It's the city's newly adopted symbol which is cool. There are quatrafoils everywhere!!!!! We all still think its cool when we see them, but since they're everywhere it's not as exciting as when we go to other cities and see 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.

There are quatrefoils on the ceiling at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. We went there for an SAI/Phi Mu Alpha formal and there are a lot of SAIs that are also Phi Mu ladies - we all got really excited about them, much to the bewilderment of our non-Phi Mu SAI sisters!

I was watching the Gene Simmons Roast on A&E. The photos for introducing all the guests were in quatrafoils.

After convention I met my family in Jupiter, Fl. The Italianate fountain at the Jupiter Beach Resort has a quatrefoil base.

The people whose kids I babysit for recently bought a quatrafoil fountain. I was excited to see it and told the mom so. I don't think she knew what I was talking about, but the kids now know that the funny shape is a "quaterfoil"!
