Coat of Arms of the city:
St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France

Do cities and townships in the USA have coats of arms?  Some towns offer a “Welcome to…” sign at the main road ornamented with the brands or logos of the organizations that paid for the sign.

What about the organizations and grassroots groups that don’t waste their resources on brand marketing?  I wonder which groups will replace the Rotary Club and the Union Sisters?

What do the symbols on the shield for St. Jean Pied de Port mean?  You can pursue the information offered on French Wikipedia.

The category for municipal heraldry in the USA needs more writers to develop content.
