This W3C-unspecified vector image was created with Inkscape.
English: Coats of arms of the French province of Gascogne. These are the modern arms created by the herald of arms of Louis XIV for completion of his armorial.
Français : Blason de la province de Gascogne. Ce sont des armes modernes créées par le héraut d'armes de Louis XIV pour compléter son armorial, la province, disputée comme la Picardie entre plusieurs grandes maisons, n'ayant jamais eu d'armes propres. Le lion évoque celui des Armagnac, des Pardiac et des Mauléon qui portaient tous, ainsi que Bigorre, une brisure d'Aquitaine, la soumission de Bernard d'Armagnac au duc d'Aquitaine étant antérieure à l'introduction des blasons. En revanche Albret et Béarn portaient des armes bien distinctes. L'écartelé évoque une province frontalière.
