The Iron Front symbol (sometimes referred to as the Three Arrows) is logo which was used in the 1930s as part of a movement against Nazism.
The symbol itself is three arrows pointing south-westerly (down and to the left) enclosed in a circle, though the circle is not wholly necessary.
In the original imagery, the three arrows were symbolically opposed to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, Ernst Thalmann’s Communist Party and the conservative politics of Franz von Papen.
First used by social democrats in Germany, the symbol soon spread across the world and has become a familiar banner for anti-fascist organisations, such as the ‘Antifa’ network.–goal.com

- a fan favorite
This has become a one of my favorite items I sell. Personally, I really enjoy wearing the red embroidered cap on a day-to-day basis.
Additionally, the logo on the hat is embroidered. Embroidered logos are more durable that a hat made with a printed logo. I am very proud of the quality of the hats, and have even put them through the washing machine.
Another thing to point out – as the brim of the hat is solid black. So it is easier on the eyes. Hats that have a white brim will feel ‘brighter’ to the eyes, and so may not be as effective when using a cap to protect from the sun.
A little extra history:
I have read that the logo was created so that it could also be painted over a swastika.
