The Bishops Stambo

I have now finished the Bishop of Åbo/Turku Stambo/Bannerman. The Bishop will follow closely...



The Coat of Arms on the Banner and Shield are the one for Archdiocese of Åbo/Turku, a red Georgian cross with concave tips in a field of gold.



Archdiocese of Åbo/Turku was established in the late 12th century. First at Nousis but moved in 1229 to Korois in Räntämäki. Below a scale model of the Bishopric at Korois...might have to build me one of those...


17th June 1300 the new Åbo/Turku Cathedral was open and the Bishopric moved for a last time from Korois to Åbo/Turku, but thats another story...

    1. I hope that I was not too much "brutal"...
      sometimes, I'm not sure that bloggers know that the WV is in function on their own blog!
      I don't have any problem with the free comments yet, so no reason for me to change and I hope that it's more lifeful for those who comment.
