Sign for the Blue Boar
Sign for the Blue Boar
The blue boar is a heraldic reference to the Earl of Oxford. The white boar similarly refers to Richard III. It is said that after the defeat of Richard and the Yorkists at the Battle of Bosworth (1485), many White Boar signs were hastily painted blue, since the Earl of Oxford was a leading supporter of the Lancastrain cause.
