It's Happened Again!
So there we were, out shopping to pick up a piece for the newly-renovated bathroom, and walking back to our car from the store (IKEA, if you must know, and it was a very long drive from my house), and right there, as big as life, on the side of a van, was a coat of arms.
Well, kind of a coat of arms.
Okay, it's not really a coat of arms in the classic sense; it's the logo of FCBarcelona, a Spanish football, or fútbol, club. Or as their website notes, they are "més que un club" (more than a club).
Still, it's on a shield shape, and parts of it are definitely heraldic in the classic sense.
So there you have it, a serendipitous piece of heraldry, right out there where I couldn't help but see it. And photograph it, so I could share it with all of you.
Once again, "you can find heraldry everywhere!" Even in the (huge) parking lot of an IKEA store.
