Oslo Cathedral, St. Hallvard coat of arms

On our last morning in Oslo, we visited the cathedral. Seems like it had been closed when we tried to go before. It was consecrated in 1697 and restored to its original baroque interior in 1950. Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church or Norway, Diocese of Oslo, as well as the parish church for downtown.

Thanks to Lynn, this is the coat of arms of Hallvard, patron saint of Oslo.

The more I look at this the more I like it. The birds holding up the coat of arms with a foot and a wing, the different crown and an interesting coat of arms. Cool shot Helen V
