3 Flags and they are the Norwegian flag, Ulster Irish flag (I think) and the Scottish flag.
Symbolism wise :
we have a skull with crossed bones.
the cross sitting in a crown.
a G in a five-pointed star sitting in one column plinth.
An apparent masonic compass & square in the other column plinth.
Pawns on top of each column.
the dates 1688 and 1795 adorning either side of the base of the arch.
All seeing eye upon the keystone sitting in the arch.
Not a clue what it all means, whats the age of the pub?
It could have been built by masons or the local tipple after a meeting, might even be a masonic place of heritage that is linked to the past that
collectively made the order stand as it does.
I can't really make heads nor tails with the dates though...
