As today, 7 December, is International Civil Aviation Day, here is some civil aviation-related heraldry to mark the occasion.
From South Africa : Union Airways, which existed from 1929 to 1934 (the field of the shield is supposed to be gold).
From Luxembourg : the municipal arms of Sandweiler, dating from 1983.
The College of Arms took a more subtle approach when designing arms for British aviation corporations. No aircraft, but symbols of flight instead :
the arms granted to the British Overseas Airways Corporation in 1941 ...
... and those of British European Airways, granted in 1946 ...
... and those of the two companies' successor, British Airways, granted in 1975.
