Glasgow CoA on the Clyde Navigation Trust's Prince's Dock Power Station.

It's good to see that someone has taken the time and effort to paint up LP's CoA

Old embroidered cap badge I bought recently, was used by very senior uniformed corpy staff, such as the trams, police & museums.
It's mostly wire & silk thread, the fish scales are little discs of metal sewn on.

This play available on Kindle on amazon.co.uk puts a kind of fantasy spin on St Mungo and his coat of arms:

A fine wee Edinburgh based one that I'd had no idea about, in that city's Nicolson Square (being halfway up the pillar there):

There is/ was a Glasgow Coat of Arms above the stage in the Debating Chamber in the Men's Union at Glasgow University. I've done a quick search and don't see it here.

Anyone got a pic?
I hear the people sing.

Here's another one (and possibly the last) from Edinburgh, being a rather stylish interpretation on the west-facing side of a bridge over the Edinburgh & Glasgow Union Canal (where Viewforth crosses). There's an Edinburgh one on to match on the east-facing side:
