On February 7 (yes, I know this is a little late, but I've been working very hard on selecting all of the pictures and writing the text for all of the posts on the heraldry of Florence, Italy. I still can't believe how much heraldry there is there, or how many photos I took!), the town of Burnham-on-Sea in England celebrated fifty years of its officially-granted coat of arms.
There's a whole article about the history of the grant of arms, with lots of photographs and even a shot of Diana Lee, who designed the coat of arms 50 years ago, with her original artwork.
The article and photographs can be found on-line at: http://www.burnham-on-sea.com/news/2011/coat-of-arms-ceremony-photos-07-02-11.php
Happy New Year!
