A virtual lecture on the Arms of the City of London and its diverse ancient and modern Livery Companies

The Heraldry Society warmly welcomes you to enrol for our second virtual lecture… “Arms of the City of London and its Livery Companies” delivered by Heraldry Society Council Member and popular lecturer Paul Jagger.

The City of London’s relationship with heraldry is a unique one, since it is home to the oldest civic arms of any town or city in the United Kingdom, and the oldest corporate arms still in use to this very day.

Each of the City’s many Livery Companies proudly displays their arms in an array of heraldry that blends the old with the new from heraldic banners to social media avatars. Heraldry in the City of London is at once spectacularly ancient and ultra modern.

The City is also home to the greatest concentration of personal arms in the realm and continues to be a source of new peititioners for grants of arms in the 21st century.

Cost: Free of Charge
