Some Heraldic "Old Friends" in Heidelberg, Germany
Leaving Heidelberg Castle and going down into the Old City of Heidelberg itself, I ran across some familiar heraldry there.

The arms of the Palatine (Rheinland-Pfalz) and Bavaria (Bayern), on separate shields on a pillar ...
... and as quartered arms on a ceiling boss:
Another coat of arms that we've seen before are the arms of Baden (Or a bend gules), found here on a stained glass window:
It's always fun to look around and recognize some coats of arms as "old friends" with which we are familiar!
