Product Description : Antique Gold Colour Prague Castle City Crest Heraldic Shield Tourist Pin Badge

  • A very pretty gold coloured metal pin badge from former Czechoslovakia.

    The badge face is 1.2cm high and has a long, stick pin style fastener to the rear.
    The picture depicts the city crest of Prague with a sword wielding arm poking out of the door of Prague castle, which represents the defense of the city against the invading Swedish Army.

    This is an antique pin badge, made in the 1960's and in good condition.

    These kinds of tourist pins were collected by tourists back in the communist days, when foreign travel was out of the question for most citizens.
    You would buy a pin and wear it as a souvenier of your visit.
    These days there are no towns or attractions that produce these pins, which is a shame and makes these old examples very special.

    The heraldic crests themselves are usually steeped in history, most of the towns and cities in the Bohemia and Moravian areas started appearing around 700 to 800 years ago and the crests tell of battles against the Swedish or the invading Turks, of defending angels and Christ's Holy Grail. The heraldic crests today remain the same but people tend to forget the origin and history of them.
