More coats of arms September 20, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
I’m sure Kim Jong-Il won’t mind me reproducing his country’s coat of arms here (left) TOO much. Actually, you’ve got to give it to the Commies on the symbol front. They had/have some pretty good iconic stuff. My only trouble with the Soviet one (right) – very sadly no longer with us, but at least they restored the national anthem (with laughably bad words) – is that the globe appears to have a pair of alcoholic’s ears. What’s that got to do with anything? (Soviet coat of arms pic pilfered from Wikipedia, by the way.)
