The �4F� symbol central to this design represents a movement begun by Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (1778-1852), or �Turnvater Jahn�, who is credited with responsibility for organizing the first gymnastic clubs (Turn Vereine) in Germany during the early 19th century. The four Fs stand for �Frisch, Fromm, Fr�hlich, Frei� (Fresh, Pious, Happy, Free).
