  • A Pennsylvania Dutch folk art design that's often seen on porches and other entryways. The word "Wilkum" (welcome) appears on the sign, usually with facing distlefinks above it. The birds symbolize happiness and good fortune. A lucky star and greenery, positioned between the distlefinks, symbolize luck and a bountiful life, respectively.
