3 December 1963, Madagascar
State crest of Antsirabe, Tulear and Majunga
design of coat of arms: Robert Louis & Suzanne Gauthier
Not only the nation or the head of state have their coat of arms – almost all states, cities and towns in Europe and their colonies have their heraldry. Here some modern design of states od Majunga in Madagascar, – shows Baobab tree from the region and three boats, indicating that Majunga ( Mahajanga ) is a harbour town. Yes, they must have crocodiles in their region, too.
This summer I met a young French designer who has her family origin from Madagascar. It was a lovely encounter with her, to know her poetic approach in her creations.
