Pallia and Arms...

I had promised myself that I'd refrain from posting anything further about the Holy Father's Coat of Arms, given the ill-tempered and exaggerated discussions surrounding it. However, everyone seemed puzzled by the addition of the Pallium to the arms and whilst looking through a periodical issued by an Italian archdiocese a number of months ago I discovered that said Archbishop has a Pallium on his arms. That set me searching for a few other examples:

Arms of Mons Caffarra, Archbishop of Bologna

Arms of Mons Marra, Archbishop of Messina

Arms of Mons Buoncristiani, Archbishop of Siena
