CHILAUW(now Chilaw)

Arms (crest) of Chilauw

Official blazon


The arms show a single Dutch merchant ships. The meaning thereof I do not know.

The above image dates from a manuscript dating from 1717/1720. The town currently does not use arms.

Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
