Heraldry in the News
But, apparently, not all that newsworthy.
Or, maybe it's newsworthy, but neither controversial nor interesting.
In a story on July 11 in the Niagara-On-The-Lake Town Crier, it was noted that at a public meeting at Niagara-On-The-Lake to get input from the public on the town's updated coat of arms and flag, only half a dozen people showed up, none of whom were the town councilors.
So, apparently, as the process of obtaining a grant of arms and a flag from the Canadian Heraldic Authority nears its end, nobody cares.
Or, what I hope is more the case, no one has any real objections to the design.
In any event, you can read the full article with more details and additional background, as well as quotes from Albion Herald Extraordinary Bishop Ralph Spence, on-line on the website of NiagaraThisWeek.com at http://www.niagarathisweek.com/news-story/3887787-poor-turnout-for-flag-consultation/
