Civic heraldry of Ireland
Araltais in Éirinn
County : Monaghan
The red hand with yellow background represents that Monaghan is part of the Irish Province of Ulster. The castle & the wall represent Monaghan Town, which was once a fortified town with walls.
The castle & wall are white, to represent the limestone stone, commonly found in Monaghan. The blue background represents Ireland, as blue is the colour of the Irish National Arms.
The blue & white together is a reminder of the Scottish Colours & so the Scottish Plantation of Ulster
The yellow bird (a martlet), represents the Rossmore Estate, an Anglo-Irish Gentry Estate, located just outside Monaghan Town.
The arms in the Coffee Hag albums +/- 1935
