A Lithuanian Vytis Army Cap Badge
A Lithuanian Vytis Army Cap Badge - Two-piece construction, silvered armour-clad knight on horseback holding an olden sword and shield, also known as the Vytis insignia, on a red enamelled bronze-based dome, 22 mm, with intact prongs, extremely fine. Footnote: The coat of arms of Lithuania, consisting of an armor-clad knight on horseback holding an olden sword and shield, is also known as Vytis ("the Chaser"). The Lithuanian coat of arms is one of the oldest national coats of arms in Europe. It is one of very few containing symbolism adopted from ducal portrait seals rather than from coats of arms of dynasties, which is the case for most European countries.
