European Capitals’ Emblems

Emblems are heraldic devices or symbolic objects taken as distinctive badges for a national, a city or a family. Historynutshell.com has made a great effort in research and compilation to offer us this beautiful map of the city emblems of all European capitals. And yes, it seems that Europeans love animals (in particular bears), crowns, angels and castles! A bit of explanations of the origins of each emblem would have been much welcome though.
