The quilt is a collective symbol of the Mennonite and Brethren faith communities that spans many generations. Quilts represent the cooperative spirit of real people working together toward a common goal, with the total being greater than the sum of its parts.
In addition to community, quilts also stand for the ideals of diversity—one quilt made up of many pieces. Quilts hint at the practical benefits of warmth and security as well as the link to tradition. Most of all, quilts epitomize thrift and innovation—valuable new creations formed from scraps of fabric, inventive design, and hard work.
As a symbol of who we are as a Credit Union, the quilt square reminds us of our roots in the Mennonite/Brethren community. It reinforces in a visual way the values of cooperation, thrift, creativity, diversity, and warm and friendly service that make us different—unlike any other financial institution. Park View Federal Credit Union is unique because it reflects you—our members.
