You may have seen a car with a sticker of a pineapple on it and wondered what that meant. This is a pretty good question to ask! That’s because no one really knows what the sticker means anymore.
The thing about these stickers is that they’ve been around for so long people don’t remember why they started using them in the first place. Some say it was during the 1980s when students in colleges used to put something called an “anarchy symbol” on their cars. They did this because anarchy is fun and college students like fun. Nobody knows if this is true or not, but there is definitely no connection between anarchy and pineapples, so maybe not!
Nowadays, people just put the stickers on their cars because they look cool or they like pineapples. It’s possible that people think you’re cooler if your car has a pineapple sticker on it, but nobody knows for sure—and hey, even if you don’t know what the sticker means, at least it looks cool!

The appeal of the pineapple sticker is that it’s always positive. It means “welcome”—and there’s no better way to welcome guests than by displaying it from your car’s front windshield. You can do this in any color you choose (we like red or yellow for matching with the car). What’s even better is that you can get a pineapple sticker at any office supply store for less than ten dollars—or even print one yourself with some computer paper. If you want to create more organic welcomes, you could consider adding a few extra pineapples growing out of the ground onto your porch or some nearby tree as well.
Another explanation is that the fruit represents warmth, a friendly reminder to show some love.
