Description

For centuries the scallop has been the unofficial symbol of pilgrims heading for the tomb of the Apostle James. Although originally pilgrims took a scallop with them on their way back home to prove that they had actually reached Santiago de Compostela in Spain, today it has become the symbol of pilgrims heading there, regardless of whether they arrive in Santiago or not.

In our shop you can buy a scallop with Slovakia’s coat of arms, which clearly represents the Slovak section of the Camino de Santiago. It comes with a cord you can use to hang it from your back-pack or an item of clothing.
