History of the Weathervane:
The first known weathervane dates back to the First Century, B.C. in Athens, Greece. It was made of bronze and was in the shape of Triton, the sea god. Triton held a rod that, when the wind blew, pointed in the direction the wind was blowing. Throughout history, weathervanes have gained in popularity and are now used primarily as architectural adornments.
Why is the Rooster Copper Weathervane So Popular:
The Rooster is the most popular weathervane seen on barns, church steeples, and roofs throughout the country. It's popularity is because after the Last Supper, it was written that, "...Peter would deny Jesus three times “before the rooster crowed.” (Luke 22:34) Therefore, St. Peter was symbolized by the Rooster. Later on, between 590 and 604 A.D., Pope Gregory I declared the rooster a symbol of Christianity. "In the 9th century, Pope Nicholas made the rooster official. His decree was that all churches must display the rooster on their steeples or domes as a symbol of Peter’s betrayal of Jesus. In accordance with the decree, churches started using weathervanes with the rooster." (from https://www.farmersalmanac.com/why-are-roosters-on-weathervanes-25694)
