Stag Display Shield
Stag’s Head Heraldic Symbolism
And Use On The Shield
has always hunted and the great horned Stag has always been a worthy opponent.
The Stag uses stealth and great awareness to avoid man yet with another stag,
shows its valor and superiority in protecting its territory.
Early Paleolithic man immortalized the stag by cave drawings that show men wearing antlers on their heads in ceremony, so we can conclude that the elusive stag has been a focal point of admiration and mysticism since the earliest of man’s time.
The old name for deer was cerf (French), and it is chiefly the head that appears on the more ancient arms. It is found on many shields throughout Europe, the British Isles and Scandanavian countries such as Norway, where it is still to be found on the shields of various townships.
This particular shield would be referred to as Stag's Head Caboshed referring to its position on the shield in heraldry. The crown on its brow shows Authority and the red tongue represents WAR. It is a fine shield to carry into battle as it represents Valor and Unity with its own kind to protect the Peace and Harmony of home and hearth.
