Boar in heraldry

Boar, wild boar - the emblem, symbolizing courage and fearlessness. Almost always portrayed in black and in profile.
Sometimes one boar's head (fr. La hure) appears; moreover, the description separately indicates the color of the eyes and fangs of the animal (French les defenses). The head of a boar is a popular sign on the signs of restaurants and entertainment venues, in this context it symbolizes both gluttony and sexual strength.
The white boar was the breastplate of Richard III. At his coronation in 1483, 13,000 such badges were ordered. For this reason, opponents called Richard "boar" or "hog." After the king’s defeat at the Battle of Bosworth, hotel owners changed the emblem of the white boar to blue.
Also boars the coat of arms of many municipalities (communities and cities) of European countries.
