Celtic Boar

For the Celts also, the boar symbolized military courage and strength, and images of boars decorated helmets and shields just as boars decorated heraldic shields, later on in the Middle Ages. The boar was sometimes linked with St. Columbanus who lived in a forest and protected boars from hunters.
