Papal Coat of Arms
Question from Nathan C. on 4/19/2005:
United States

I have seen footage of the newly elected pontif's Coat of Arms being displayed (on the balcony) before His first appearance and blessing at pope. (ex. Pope John Paul I)

Do they (the Vatican) have a version of each of the Cardnal's coat of arms that He will use if elected as pope?

Answered on 4/26/2005:

That was not the newly elected pontiff's coat of arms, but John Paul II's. I am guessing that we may have to wait a couple weeks, or more, to see what Papa Ratzinger's coat of arms will be. It need not be the same as his episcopal coat of arms. John Paul's was not.
