Faux Heraldry in Maastricht

One of the, well, not "pleasures" exactly, of seeking out heraldry when I travel is the imitation or fake heraldry that I run across.  And this even in cities that are chock full of the real thing.  So, that said, you have been warned.  Here are a few of the imitations of heraldry that I ran across during my stay in Maastricht.

The above is the, well, I hesitate to use the term "coat of arms" since heraldically is it a very poor design, so let's just call it the logo of the Onafhankelijk Maastrichts Studenten Genootschap Plutarchus, the  Independent Student Association Maastricht Plutarch.

  1. I wouldn't call the last one faux-heraldry; it's a mask that happen to resemble a shield.
