In Honor of International Heraldry Day
In honor of International Heraldry Day today, I changed my profile picture on Facebook to this shot of me wearing the only hat that I could find in Dublin, Ireland with a coat of arms on it.
The shield is, of course, the arms of Dublin.
But to think that I had to buy this to get some "wearable heraldry." (Aside from the tie that I found there with the arms of the four provinces of Connacht, Leinster, Munster, and Ulster scattered regularly across it.) Still, the bells hanging from the tips of the horns are a nice touch, don't you think? Not to mention the blue braids.
