Seal of Mullingar
The seal of Mullingar is 2.25 inches in diameter and is made of bronze. In the centre is a mill-wheel within an archway, which represents the mill from which Mullingar derives its name. Over the archway is a heckle emblematic of the flax and woollen industries for which Mullingar was famous in bye-gone times. On the left is a tower from which springs a demi-griffin rampant. The significance of the other symbols has not yet been determined. Around the seal are the words “Sigilum Comune De Mollingar”. It is probably 15th century work.
