Visitor Tips and News About Roland A. Remnant
Roland has a new coat of paint! He is rolling a large green log of carpet and he has blue pants, yellow shirt, and extremely bright orange hair & eyebrows. His lips are painted an unnatural shade of candy apple red so, up close, it looks a bit like lipstick. Not judging you, Roland, you just keep rolling that carpet log![Jen Storey, 05/27/2011]
Roland A. Remnant is now green, like the Jolly Green Giant.[David Almasi, 11/29/2010]
I just wanted to drop you a line regarding the carpet figure in Westminster. I don't know where the gentlemen came up with Roland D. Carpet, his name is Roland A. Remnant. There was a contest twenty couple years ago to name him, and a friend of mine named John Seymour won the contest.[Jim Yealy 6/30/00, 06/30/2000]
This colossal carpet installer sits atop Trayor's Floors & Carpets. Good 'ol Roland has been there as far back as I can recall, and is one of the few unique and immediately recognizable landmarks in the Westminster business district. There are none who dare to challenge his might!
Roland has apparently outlasted another formidable floor-covering mascot, the awe-inspiring, lance-wielding Carpet Knight who once stood guard over nearby Eldersburg, MD. I haven't seen the Knight in quite some time, but I'm hoping that he has merely moved on to the plusher pastures of some other carpeted kingdom...[Bryan Costin, 04/12/1999]
