Some Brazilian Corporate Heraldry.

Postby Marcus Karlsson » 13 Apr 2013, 11:35

Some Brazilian Corporate Societies and organisations have Arms. Here are a few i have found on the Internet.

Image
The Arms was approved on 20 June 1981. The symbolism are:
The wavy bars for the Paraiba and Piranhas Rivers, the Sugar loafes from the old Arms of Paraibaand the Armarilic Sphere from the Arms granted by King João VI on 13 May 1816.
