Heraldry in the News!

An article from the BBC News from November 4, 2009 is about a piece of heraldic stained glass work that has come to light in Edinburgh during the refurbishment of the Fraser Suites Hotel.  The arms are those of the University of Edinburgh, though the motto is apparently that of Sir Patrick Geddes, known for his work in urban planning along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.


I must say, the window is a beautiful piece of work.
