Exquisitely handcrafted in steal with a natural metal finish. This is a truly intriguing piece of memorabilia. At the shields heart is a Red Santiaguist or Santiago Cross.
The Order of Santiago also known as "The Order of St. James of the Sword," was founded in the 12th century, and owes its name to the Patron Saint of Spain. In heraldry, the Cross of Saint James, also called the Santiago cross or the cruz espada, is a charge in the form of a cross.
The red sword-cross known as the "Cross of St James" is represented as a red cross flory or flowered cross over a white field, where the shape of the cross is actually the blade of a sword. The military red cross of St James of Compostela is one of Galicia's oldest national symbols and can often be found in Galician heraldry and iconography.
The triangular shield, known as a kite shield, is double reinforced steel with triple reinforced corners. Beautifully embellished detailing of riveted golden studding and Red emblem against a natural steel finish, adds to the stunning contrast which make this shield so exquisite.
