Austrian Emblem?


Another emblem which has been on the entry gate of Woerden. This is an Austrian emblem? I think so, we have been part of the Austrian Empire onces, but that is so long ago. I have tried to find some more info on the web on the entry gate. I couldn't find anything on it on the web. I should ask at the museum.

Emblems and coats of arms are so fascinating. What kind of creature is it supposed to be? Good luck with your information search!

Yes it is. I see this around the old government establishments here. =)

The double-headed eagle representing Austro-Hungarian empire. Though it is also shown without chains but a flag instead...
