Immage of the Samual Beckett Bridge

The Coat of Arms of the Lord Mayor of Dublin (below) is derived from the City Arms. The figures of Law and Justice have been omitted, together with the floral emblems, and there are three important additions, the City Sword, the City Mace and the Cap of Maintenance, which are all closely identified with the Lord Mayor.
