サンフランシスコにてさつき会10月例会日米文化交流会
日本の家紋と西洋の紋章 2000年10月23日
About 70 people gathered at the residence of the Consul General of Japan to listen to a presentation on Japanese crests and European heraldry sponsored by SATSUKI-KAI INC.

Mrs. Kuwako Takahashi gave a slide presentation on the history of Japanese crests and their present use in Japan. For the occasion she was wearing a very elegant "haori" bearing her family crest. As in Western culture, these marks of identity can be placed on clothing and objects such as lacquerware and books.

Muriel Gaggini followed with a lecture on the history of European heraldry from the 12th century to the present also illustrated by slides. Participants were able to admire items on exhibit from both Japanese and European traditions.
