2) 3-Music Notes (UK version)
3) Multi-Colored Flower (New version)
Harmony Bear's tummy symbol in the 1980s was three hearts. Care Bear co-creator Linda Denham is a Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority member. Supposedly, the three hearts represent the three points of a triangle - the symbol of Linda's Tri-Sigma Sorority!
But in England, Harmony's symbol was three music notes! Most recently, Harmony Bear has finally decided on a totally new belly badge, a yellow flower with multi-colored petals.
