Cufflinks Columns of Gediminas :
This sign can also be called the Gediminaičiai columns. Initially, it was only a symbol of the ruler and power – it appeared during the reign of Duke Vytautas (1397) – his personal coat of arms.
Later, the sign became the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, therefore we find it on the coins of Vytautas, Kazimieras, Sigismund the Elder and Sigismund Augustus.
Over time, the pillars of the Gediminas became a sign of the Lithuanian state from the dynastic symbol.
