“Gruss aus München”
(Greetings from Munich)
Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city. Side images include Munich’s famous Hofbräuhaus and the Deutsches Museum.
“WEKARA” is an acronym for Wilhelm E. Krumeich aus Ransbach, a Westerwald finishing shop and distributor.
