Sign for the White Hart
Sign for the White Hart
The white hart was the favourite badge of Richard II (June 1377-September 1399) and most pubs with this name are influenced by this. But the White Hart is not always shown as the heraldic animal. He is sometimes painted realistically. Frequently, the white hart has a golden collar or a gold chain around his neck. This stems from the legend, as reported by Aristotle, that Diomedes consecrated a white hart to Diana and placed a collar of gold around its neck. The same story has been told with different casts - Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Charlemagne and Henry the Lion.
