The Heraldic arms of the Free City of Danzig.
(Two silver crosses surmounted by a golden crown. on a red field).
The intellectual and economic centre of the Free State is the ancient Hanseatic City of Danzig. Originally the city was closely confined, and only since the removal of ‘ the walls and fortifications lias she been able to expand. The new part of the city bears the stamp of a modern capital, whereas the older part reflects her past. The populace of the City has retained and defended from her foundation, in spite of force and distress, their freedom and their German character. The world-famed style of her architecture and her artistic monuments are perman—eut witnesses to the German character of the City of Danzig.
