    Why does the Currituck sheriff’s office have the Las Vegas Golden Knights helmet logo in their official seal?

    Jeff Walker, the helmet has completely different “eyes”, and no “crest” on it’s head. The biggest question is how a local “paper” has the exact same logo as Sun Electronics.

    It’s probably the other way around. The Currituck County nights go back much farther in time than the Vegas Golden Knights. The predecessor of Currituck County High School was Joseph P Knapp High School, named after the founder of Ducks Unlimited. The name Knight goes back to Edward Collins Knight, the builder of the Whalehead Club.

    Jeff Walker : That’s a good question. Currituck doesn’t strike me as being a Hockey Town.

    With a nod to the artistic license taken by the creator of this crest, the helmet depicted appears to be modeled after Spartan equipment. It is most probably meant to be a generic image of a helmet to correspond with the use of the helmet in heraldry. In heraldry, the helmet symbolizes security, strength, protection, honor, courage and loyalty, among other things (depending upon whose heraldry you’re talking about and which history book you read). It’s a fitting and fine symbol for any law enforcement organization.

    This discussion of the Currituck seal is totally off of the headline topic and disrespectful to the families and friends of this hit-and-run victim. Have your history lessons another time as people are seeking help to solve this tragic event.
