Since St. Nicholas is a very popular patron saint of cities, villages, towns, districts, churches, and other institutions, he is frequently portrayed on official coats of arms. These images and symbols provide a rich sense of how widespread St. Nicholas' influence has been. Most of these coats of arms are used with the gracious permission of Heraldry of the World.
