    mycroft16: I found those as well but discounted them as they are crested with a crown not a lion.

    This thread is fascinating.

    Does anyone have a year when the three crests were placed on the back of the Castle?

    I noticed those as well, but thought I would mention them as the blazons are similar if not the entire coat of arms.

    It could be that the coat of arms on the castle was actually invented drawing inspiration from other places.

    The archives has no information on the coat of arms' origin, although it's their assumption that it was made for the Park. Nor do they know if it is actually a Disney coat of arms.

    Re: So...whose is it, really?

    Indeed, mycroft. Three lions passant in pale is not exactly a difficult design to come up with. I found several examples, variously colored, during my searches yesterday.

    If anyone wants to take a crack at finding the unidentified two on the back of the Castle, the blazon for the rightmost one should be something like:

    Sable, a lion rampant or beneath three mullets argent in chief.

    The middle one I haven't quite figured out because there's a secondary set of charges on the chevron that I can't identify from the photo. The part I can figure out would probably go:

    Argent, on a chevron sable between three martlets sable, three [UNKNOWN] or.

    (Try "roundels" or "mullets" for the blank. Or maybe "bezants," in which case the final "or" is unnecessary since bezants are gold by definition.)

    This is making me want to start up a Disneyland Heraldry thread! We could hunt for more coats of arms around the park and try to figure out whose they are. And then...we could start designing some for rides and characters!

    That would actually be pretty dang cool! Could be a lot of fun as well
    Mr. Toad has a coat of arms doesn't he? Not quite sure... by the motto maybe?

    I wonder if there at any inside the dioramas inside Sleeping Beauty Castle. In fact I wonder if those match the film?

    I wouldn't count on anything in there being accurate considering they can't spell Philip (Phillip) from one window to the next!!!

    Where would you find the Disney Coat of Arms?

    Actually, that one isn't backstage at all, it's in the Backlot Express restaurant at the Studios park. The restaurant was recently made over into half Pirates themed, half (ugh!) High School Musical, so it's quite possible the coat of arms is gone now.

    Re: So...whose is it, really?

    thanks Kaliwolf for that info. I stumbled on that image in my searches but couldn't figure out where it was. (was a copy that didn't have the hiddendlrp watermark on it).

    Re: So...whose is it, really?

    In regards to the 3 shields on the back, would the one with the 3 "crowns"(?) be relating to Sweden?
