What One City Has Done With Their Coat of Arms, Part 2 of 2

Continuing our look at the many ways that the City of Florence, Italy, displays it's coat of arms (Argent a fleur-de-lis florency gules), today we're going to look at examples that you may have to go to, or even inside of, a particular building to see.

As before, see how many different mediums, styles, etc. you can find:

First, two examples from the Basilica of Santa Croce:

And one from the exterior of the Church of Santa Maria Novella:

And, of course, we cannot leave out the Duomo, the City's cathedral:

The Palazzo Vecchio, the City Hall, is always worth stopping by:

As is the Palazzo Pitti on the other side of the Arno River:

Finally, a painted example from another building interior:

I hope that you have enjoyed seeing some of the many ways that the City of Florence, Italy, uses its coat of arms!

How many ways can you find to use yours? How many ways do you use yours?
