Hex signs, six-sided, brightly colored geometric designs, found their way to America many years ago with German immigrants who settled in the Lancaster County area of Pennsylvania.
The German word for six is 'sechs' and this evolved to the present-day hex. Hex signs were, and still are, thought to bring good luck, protection, abundance and fortune to those who adorn their barns with them.
