Umbrellas

In Hartford, umbrellas mean Travelers, a big insurance company and a big employer.  At Bradley International Airport,  passengers walk to the gates past a gauntlet of red umbrellas projected onto the passageway.  Each big red umbrella is made up of hundreds of small umbrellas.  When the beam is interrupted, the umbrellas dance.

The Hartford umbrella commercials are some of the best I've ever seen! Great icon.

Re your comment: I think we should be surrounded by cowbells which would start "tinkling" when ding-alings approach!
