So, having finally finished going through my earlier pictures of heraldry in Stuttgart and Heidelberg from a couple of trips taken several years ago, we are now up to our trip to Europe in 2019, with stops in Belgium (specifically, Antwerp and Ghent) and Denmark (Copenhagen, with side trips to Fredericksborg, Helsingør, and Roskilde).
So first, Belgium, whose national arms are blazoned Sable a lion rampant or armed and langued gules.
If you arrive in Antwerp by train, as you come out of the Central Station, be sure to turn around and take a look up:
You will see a gilded rendition of the Belgian national arms in front of an obelisk and supported by two lions:
In any case, we will certainly be seeing a lot more from the interior of the Cathedral in future posts; there is a lot of heraldry to be found there.
