This sign is outside the Hotel Auberge Communale on the Rue Ancienne (Old Road). The central shield bears the Carouge coat of arms, which seems to be a a lion reclining under a tree on a green field against a red/orange background. I’m sure there is very precise heraldic terminology to describe this, but I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what the significance of the three castles on top is either.
Taken with my Son-in-Law’s Nikon, D80 and Sigma 18-200mm f3.5-f6.3 lens.
