To finish every week travel-inspired, I tell you every Friday about one of the photos of my blog’s header.
This week, I’ve selected a photo taken in June 2015 at the Barbican, in London.
It shows the blazon of the City of London:
The shield combines the cross of St George with the emblem of the City’s patron, St Paul, who, according to tradition, was martyred by being beheaded with that weapon.
It is therefore likely that the City’s shield, from its combination of the Cross of St. George with the Sword of St. Paul, was intended to symbolise England and London, its capital; the first cathedral having been dedicated to St. Paul in 605.
