Periodically I am reminded, sometimes almost forcibly, that if you are looking around, you can find heraldry anywhere and _every_where!
In the most recent example of this in my life, we were just poking around one of our favorite antique malls here in Dallas (if you're ever in the neighborhood, we'd be happy to take you to it) and ran across a small (1¼" tall) gold-colored key pendant with the arms of New Orleans, Louisiana (often shortened to NOLA) on it.
Anyway, what a great little find during a morning's outing!
Happy New Year!
