Philip's heraldic motto (there are alternate spellings) was "Aultre n'auray" – "I will have no other."

The New Zealand "Coat Of Arms" stamps were principally for fiscal use.
They ranged in values from 1/- upwards.
Stamps well in excess of NZ$1,000 were issued & used, punched or embossed, on documents.

Here is an image of a stamp depicting the coat of arms of the Austrian state of Tyrol, designed by Austrian artist Robert Fuchs (1896-1981), engraved by Georg Wimmer, and issued by Austria on June 13, 1959 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the fight for Tyrolese liberation against Bavarian authority, Scott No. 645. The red eagle in Tyrol's coat of arms may derive from the Brandenburg eagle, although the Tyrolean eagle had already appeared as early as the 13th century.

Thanks for starting this thread soumik, I can see it going for a long time.

One point - Google checks this Board all the time and it requires words rather than images. It helps if you describe the stamp. The perfect example (that lets me out) is the post by nethryk above.

Coat of Arms of Bermuda, as depicted on the £1 of the 1953 definitive series (SG 150).
Image
Image
Quo Fata Ferunt - "Whither the Fates Carry [Us]"

The coat of arms is a white shield with a red lion standing on a green grassy field holding a scrolled shield showing the sinking of the ship 'Sea Venture' off Bermuda in 1609.

The 'Sea Venture' is the flagship of the Virginia Company, which had established Virginia and Jamestown on the American continent two years earlier. The ship was deliberately driven on to the reefs of Bermuda, by Admiral Sir George Somers, in 1609, to prevent it from foundering in a storm. All aboard survived, resulting in the settlement of the island.

Coat of Arms Stamp from Andorra 1937

Image

Andorra , officially the Principality of Andorra (Catalan: Principat d'Andorra), also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, Catalan: Principat de les Valls d'Andorra), is a landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France. It is the sixth smallest nation in Europe, having an area of 468 km2 (181 sq mi) and an estimated population of 85,000 in 2012. Its capital, Andorra la Vella, is the highest capital city in Europe, at an elevation of 1,023 metres (3,356 ft) above sea level. The official language is Catalan, although Spanish, Portuguese, and French are also commonly spoken.

Created under a charter in 988, the present Principality was formed in 1278. It is known as a principality as it is a monarchy headed by two co-princes – the Bishop of Urgell and the President of France.

Andorra is a prosperous country mainly because of its tourism industry, which services an estimated 10.2 million visitors annually, and also because of its status as a tax haven. It is not a member of the European Union, but the euro is the de facto currency. The people of Andorra have the 7th highest human life expectancy in the world — 82 years at birth.

1973 Liechtenstein 'Coat of Arms' Stamp

Image



Liechtenstein, officially the Principality of Liechtenstein (Listeni/ˈlɪktənstaɪn/ LIK-tən-styn; German: Fürstentum Liechtenstein, is a doubly landlocked alpine country in Central Europe, bordered by Switzerland to the west and south and by Austria to the east and north. Its area is just over 160 square kilometres (62 sq mi), and it has an estimated population of 35,000. Its capital is Vaduz. The biggest town is Schaan. Liechtenstein has the highest gross domestic product per person in the world when adjusted by purchasing power parity, and has the world's lowest external debt. Liechtenstein also has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world at 1.5%.

Liechtenstein is the smallest yet the richest (by measure of GDP per capita) German-speaking country and the only country to lie entirely within the Alps. It is known as a principality as it is a constitutional monarchy headed by a prince. Liechtenstein is divided into 11 municipalities. Much of its terrain is mountainous, making it a winter sports destination. Many cultivated fields and small farms characterize its landscape both in the south (Oberland, upper land) and in the north (Unterland, lower land). The country has a strong financial sector located in the capital, Vaduz, and has been identified as a tax haven. It is a member of the European Free Trade Association and part of the European Economic Area and the Schengen Area, but not of the European Union.

1973 Postage Due stamps Coat of Arms Imprint Questra.

Lithography Printing

The Isle of Man , otherwise known simply as Mann , is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, located in the Irish Sea between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann. The Lord of Mann is represented by a Lieutenant Governor, but its foreign relations and defence are the responsibility of the British Government. Although the United Kingdom does not usually intervene in the island's domestic matters, its "good government" is ultimately the responsibility of the Crown (that is, in practice, the Government of the United Kingdom).

The Isle of Man has a unique constitutional relationship with the United Kingdom which enables it to elect its own Government, make its own laws, levy its own taxes and control expenditure.

The nurturing of a low personal and company taxation policy has led to the establishment of a vibrant and successful finance centre and therefore it is fitting also that it should issue its own currency, the Manx pound, which is equivalent in value to its United Kingdom counterpart.

The issue of its own currency is a positive statement of independence and the power of self determination. It is also an important source of investment income which would otherwise accrue to the United Kingdom if that country's currency was allowed to displace it.

The pre-independence coat of arms of the Bahamas, as depicted on the ½d 1965 definitive (SG 247), the 1c 1966 surcharge for the new decimal currency (SG 273) and the 1c 1967 definitive (SG 295).
Image
The arms show an English frigate hunting down two pirates.

The motto is "EXPULSIS PIRATIS RESTITUTA COMMERCIA" - "The Pirates Dislodged, the Trade Restored".

This is taken from the earlier great seal, or badge of the colony, as depicted on the Tricentenary commemorative issue of 1930 (SG 126-130).
Image
In 1670 King Charles II granted the islands to the Lords Proprietors of the Carolinas, who rented the islands from the king with rights of trading, tax, appointing governors, and administering the country. During this proprietary rule, the Bahamas became a haven for pirates, including the infamous Blackbeard. To restore orderly government, Britain made the Bahamas a crown colony in 1718 under the royal governorship of Woodes Rogers. After a difficult struggle, he succeeded in suppressing piracy.

QEII £1 from the 1968 definitive series (SG 387) and $2 from the 1969 decimal currency issue (SG 407):

Coat of arms of The Gambia, as depicted on the 1965 Independence commemorative issue (SG 212 & 214):
Image
Image
The coat of arms of The Gambia has been in use since 18 November 1964. It depicts two lions holding an axe and hoe, supporting a shield that depicts another pair of hoe and axe, crossed. Atop the shield is set the heraldic helmet and an oil palm as a crest. At the bottom is the national motto: Progress - Peace - Prosperity.

The two lions represent the colonial history of The Gambia as part of the British Empire. The crossed axe and hoe represent the importance of agriculture to The Gambia. They are also considered to represent the two major ethnic groups of The Gambia: the Mandinka and the Fulani. The crest, a palm tree, is also a vital national tree.

Cyprus Coat of Arms 1960 Overprint SG 202 - 53 £1: Color: Lake & Slate

The original stamps were issued in 1955.

This stamp depicts Coat of Arms from the Byzantine, Lusignan, Venetian and Ottoman era of the Cyprus.

SG catalogue states: Coins of Salamis, Paphos,

Citium and Idalium. Further study reveals these are ancient coins..

Cyprus was declared an independent republic on the 16th of August 1960. With the declaration of the Republic of Cyprus, all Cyprus stamps in Cyprus and in the U.K. were considered property of the Republic. It was decided not to destroy them, but instead to overprint them and use them for postal purposes. The phrase "Cyprus Republic" was overprinted in Greek and Turkish.


I find this stamp most attractive.

Thank you Nethryk! I had totally forgotten about that stamp, and it brought back memories for me as I lived in Overijse (to the South of Brussels) for several years, mostly in my teens.

Here is another proof of a stamp engraved by Leon Janssens in 1968, reprising the theme of stamps early in the reign of Leopold II, and which was issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the transfer of Belgium's stamp production facility from Brussels to Malines (about 20 kilometers or so North of Brussels):

Here is an image of a stamp depicting the coat of arms of the Roman Catholic Archbishopric of Asunción, engraved and printed by Security Banknote Company, and issued by Paraguay on January 6, 1948 as one of a set of twelve stamps commemorating the 50th anniversary (in 1945) of the archbishopric, Scott No. 448. Note that the letter "C" in the Latin word focis looks like a "G" in the archbishopric's motto, Pro aris et focis, ("For our altars and hearths"), Fortiter et Suaviter ("Strength and Gentleness") in this stamp's design.

It seems that Algeria does not have a formal Coat of Arms but this postage stamp shows a variation on the national emblem. It was issued on 1 November 2008 as a means of giving publicity to The National Popular Army.

The Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem, commonly called the Teutonic Order, is a German medieval military order, and in modern times a purely religious Catholic order. It was formed to aid Christians on their pilgrimages to the Holy Land and to establish hospitals. Its members have commonly been known as the Teutonic Knights, since they also served as a crusading military order in the Middle Ages. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the seal of Col. Spittler (hospitaler, 1400) and the coat of arms of the Teutonic Order (1982), designed by German graphic artist Fritz Lüdtke, printed by lithography, and issued by Germany on February 15, 1990 to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the order, Scott No. 1595, Michel No. 1451, plus an image of the order''s coat of arms.

Great thread "soumik" am really learning and enjoying the postings.

This thread may convince some collectors to take up "Coat of Arms" as a theme to collect.

I am gathering all my "COA's" together and placing into a stock book, also buying some new sets.

Well done!
