Heraldry in Lufkin, Texas (1 of 5)

Having arrived in Lufkin, Texas with some time to spare, I decided to head on downtown into the city center to see if I could continue to prove my thesis that “you can find heraldry everywhere.” And, once again, the evidence supported the thesis.

Here we have the United States Courthouse, with the obverse and reverse of the Great Seal in a pair of roundels flanking the entrance on its facade.

The obverse, of course, has the arms of the United States on it. (Both obverse and reverse are also found on the US$1 bill.)

What a great, and appropriate, use of heraldry.
