I saw this during my last visit while in line for the Matterhorn. Does anyone know what thr VR stands for and what exactly this animal might be?

I tried a couple quick google searchers yesterday and couldn't find anything T_T   I'm going to try to remember to ask my CM friend (she loves random Disney trivia!) - dethrizu  301.1 #907 9:29AM
I googled it, and it has to do with Switzerland flags and Coat of Arms. Here is a summary of this shield: The flag is based on that of the Abbot of St. Gallen, who was the feudal lord of Appenzell until 1403. The flag of the abbey showed a bear on a yellow field, and the independent territory Appenzell changed the field to white for its own flag. Before its independence, Appenzell had a flag of a bear marchant (on all fours) on a honeycombed field, attested from 1377.Appenzell split into its two half-cantons as a result of the Swiss Reformation, in 1597. The "VR" in the Ausserrhoden flag stands for Vssere Rhoden. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 10:13AM
Well I noticed the Disney version of this one is missing something after looking it up lol - BeatleMike  635.4 #316 10:40AM
@Beatlemike...ummm yah, a lot of red in some strategic places. ;D - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 1:41PM
It's by the Matterhorn? This same crest was on the Skyway station in Fantasyland. I figured the VR stands for Von Roll, the Skyway's manufacturer from Switzerland. - BeatleMike  635.4 #316 10:31AM
Yeah it's in line on the left station right before you get on. I'll have too keep a look out for the one on the Skyway Station. Thanks for the info! - GodOfWine  512.5 #412 2:14PM
I thought it was a drawing of a young Harold spitting fire as a warning to anyone riding that they would require a Vertebra Realignment upon exiting the attraction...  - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #781 1:16PM
