DAMARALAND

Arms (crest) of Damaraland

Official blazon

Arms: Quarterly, Argent and Brunatre, over all a pale reguly of eight counterchanged, the projections opposite each other.
Crest: A Hawk eagle with wings displayed, perched on two bovine horns, proper.
Wreath: A head-ring Argent and Brunatre.
Supporters: Dexter a karakul and sinister a goat, both proper.

Origin/meaning

The arms were proposed but never officially adopted.

I have no information on the meaning or origin of these arms. Any information is welcome !

The homelands, and thus the arms, were abolished in 1990 at the independence of Namibia.


Literature : Brownell part V
