Deutsche Wappen Kalender
|Heraldry of the World |
Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
There have been at least two different types of heraldic calendars with this name.
The oldest I am aware of dates from 1904. This is a large (18x33 cm) calendar printed by Vogt, Papiermühle, Sachsen (image shown above). The inside shows the monthly calendar and some heraldic images of towns and states.
I have no idea how long this series was issued.
Then there is a later series, issued from 1920-1940. These are smaller, A5 size, each with a different theme:
- 1920 Deutsche Führer im Weltkrieg (leaders in the 1st World War)
- 1921 Deutsche Dichter (poets)
- 1922 Deutsche Schmieder (smiths)
- 1923-1929 not issued due to the financial crisis
- 1930 Deutsche Staatsmänner (politicians)
- 1931 Deutsche Kaufleute (merchants)
- 1932 Deutsche Maler (painters) (File:Wappenkalender-1932.pdf)
- 1933 Deutsche Rechtslehrer (professors in law)
- 1934 Deutsche Buchhändler (book sellers)
- 1935 Deutsche Ärtzte (doctors of medicine)
- 1936 Deutsche Wettkämpfer (olympians)
- 1937 Deutsche Weinhändler (wine merchants)
- 1938 Deutsche Erfinder (inventors)
- 1939 Deutsche Baumeister (builders)
- 1940 ?
This series was edited and written by Dr. Bernhard Koerner,member of the Prussian College of Arms in Berlin, and issued by Starke, Görlitz.
