These are four limited edition stamps introduced to the area of Cardiff. A coat of arms is almost used as a stamp of an area. They were usually designed to be the identity of an area, to distinguish allies from incoming enemies. Commonly enough they would share sayings or messages that the town or city would have strongly believed in. Cardiff’s holds four different sayings. The stamps show quotes from the original coat of arms. The scroll produced on the stamps are the sayings from the coat of arms. The idea is that the scrolls are wrapped around architecture or materials around Cardiff to indicate the achievements of the city.
