Company

La France Héraldique is the name of the series of albums issued by the Café Sanka company. This was the French daughter of the German Kaffee Hag company. The name Sanka was derived from Sans Caféine, meaning without caffeine. In France the brand name Hag was never used, in other countries Sanka was used as a brand of lower quality coffee, with Hag being the main brand (lik ein Holland and Belgium). In the US first Hag was introduced and later replaced by Sanka as the main quality brand.

Around 1913 Kaffee Hag started with issuing albums with collectable stamps with the arms of towns and provinces of Germany. A few years later Swiss albums followed. Due to the First World War the series stopped. In the late 1920s Hag started again in Germany and Switzerland, but now also in other countries were the coffee was sold. The Netherlands was the third country to issue heraldic albums, followed by a number of other countries. In France the company started around 1933, the exact date is not known. In all countries the series were stopped due to the Second World War. After 1945 no new albums were issued.

For information on the company, see the overview of Coffee Hag albums.

Albums

The album series La France Héraldique has a complicated history.

IThe album series La France Héraldique has a complicated history. Initially the series were intended to be issued as loose sheets, to be bound in albums per (historical) region.Therefore initially the album sheets with the arms and description of the region were issued. This was to be followed by one sheet with the nine most important cities of each province (chefs-lieux de département) within the region (each region consists of one or more provinces). Finally per province all municipal arms were to be published. However, this scheme was never completed. For each province a page with the provincial arms was issued. Later also for each département a page with the nine main towns was issued, but only of the Alsace region all arms were published.

In total there were 40 different albums planned, but only 6 were actually issued.

The first two albums were first issued as loose sheets to include more pages from different provinces. When the idea for loose albums was cancelled is not known, but the albums were reprinted as bound issues. Presently many of the albums with loose sheets that can be found are incomplete. The content and sequence of the bound issues are considered 'standard'.

The first album was initially published with a brown cover, displaying five regional arms. The lay-out of the pages was similar to the Dutch and Belgian albums and were probably designed by the same studion, the Studio Van der Laars in Hilversum, Holland. The images were not designed by them, but by an unknown author. For examples, see the images below.

Album1-old.hagfr.jpg
The first cover

In the first album only some provinces were displayed, but all the regional arms were included. Albums II-IV included the arms of the other regions and their provinces. Albums V and VI show all the municipal arms of the Alsace region, the first region in the alphabet and the only region that was completed.

The result of the change from loose sheets to albums is that the regional pages are duplicated, as are the arms of the principal cities in the two provinces of the Alsace Region (Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin). Of the 1363 images in the albums, 62 are duplicated.

Lay-out of the first and second edition of the first album:

Comtenicesheet1.hagfr.jpg
Comtenicesheet2.hagfr.jpg

Another effect is the numbering. In the first album the stamps are numbered from 1-117 (the stamps with the regional arms were not numbered, album I contains 158 stamps), but in the text the corresponding towns were numbered 1-9 for each province. In albums II-IV the stamps were now numbererd by region, in the text the towns were still numbered by province; for example the Gascogne region has 3 provinces, so the stamps are numbered 1-27, but in each province the towns are numbered 1-9. Again the regional stamps were not numbered. In some cases the stamps were not numbererd according to the alphabetical order of the provinces by region. For example in the Guyenne region there are 6 provinces, which means numbering from 1-54. However, the province Lot has numbers 46-54, but, as the third province alphabetically, should have had 28-36. In the album the sequence thus is: 1-27, 46-54, 28-45. Albums V and VI are numbered combined for the whole Alsace region. Album V contains the Bas-Rhin province numbers 1-240, album VI contains Bas-Rhin 241-276, followed by Haut-Rhin province with 277-474.

To make matters even more complicated, in some reprints the misnumbering was corrected, which means that some towns have different numbers, as shown below.

Arcis.hagfr.jpg
Arcis2.hagfr.jpg

The arms were drawn by several (unknown) artists and especially the first series and the regional arms were made by all artists and thus different versions of the stamps exist. The later stamps were only made by Fred Neukomm and are recognised by his initial. There are no texts on the reverse of the stamps. Fred Neukomm (1905-1998) was born in Switzerland and mainly known for designing advertising posters.

To have an indication of the variations, see the variations of the arms of Alsace below.

Alsace1.hagfr.jpg
Alsace2.hagfr.jpg
Alsace3.hagfr.jpg
Alsace4.hagfr.jpg
Alsace5.hagfr.jpg
Alsace-hr.hagfr.jpg

Finally, several arms were wrong and these were corrected in later editions. All together, these changes mean that although the arms officially have 1363 images, 1910 different stamps exist.

The stamps were issued in sheets of 60, 12 rows of 5 stamps each. The sheets were printed in the sequence of the numbering in the albums. Below two examples of the sheets.

Advertising

As in all countries where the Hag/Sanka albums were issued, a large advertising campaign was started.

For France I know of the following

Advertising as part of other Sanka advertising:

As well as the following menu cards

Special stamps were also issued, which were issued as advertising material. These differ from the normal stamps by the red name.

Another advertising stamp was issued, which was not part of the albums, but was part of the sheets when there was an empty space.

Album I

(album I contains images of cities in the first four regions only. All other regions are only shown with the arms of the region and combined in two files).

The first edition of Album 1 is divided into two (large) files : |

The second and later editions have the same style. To enhance the navigation through the album, the album has been divided in multiple files :

Variations

As the albums have been issued in several editions, there are some variations in the stamps as well as in the texts of the albums.

Variations in the stamps can be a different style of the drawing, these are listed in the catalogue file. Here only true heraldic variations are shown. There are 33 true variations known for the French albums, plus two variations in the name of the village on the stamps.

Variations in the texts are minor, as compared to for example the German, Swiss, Belgian and Dutch albums. These are listed below the table of variations in the stamps

This is not a real variation. The official description mentions an arm coming from the (heraldic) left part of the shield holding a banner with a star. Both images are in accordance with the blason and thus technically identical.

Variations in the texts

Most variations are in the second album between the first edition (loose sheets) and the second edition (bound volume). Only the number of inhabitants of Paris differs in the first album. All variations are rather minor.

For both the first two albums the sequence of arms-description is reversed as compared to the bound volumes. On the sheets the omages are on the front, the description on the reverse side of the page. In the bound volume the description is on the reverse of the previous page.

Album I

Paris : number of inhabitants 7.000.000 (sheets) vs 2.906.470 (bound volume). This is the number mentioned in the description of the region. For the description of the arms of Paris, both give the 2,9 million number.

Album II :

  • Strasbourg (Alsace), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 130.000 (sheets) or 181.465 (bound), but in the description of the arms the numbers are 174.500 and 181.465.
  • Sarre-Union. The text mentiones Sarre-Union, the image Saar-Union. This is also the case in album VI where the arms are shown again. The image in album II also mentions the regio as Lorraine instead of Alsace.
  • Bourgogne, the description of the region mentions on the loose sheet that 10 river run through the region, with La Saône mentioned twice. In the bound album this has been corrected.
  • Beaune (Bourgogne, Côte-d'Or, 40). The text in the loos sheet refers to 'image 89', the bound volume simply mentions 'the arms'.
  • Grenoble (Dauphiné), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 64.000 (sheets) or 90.858 (bound), but in the description of the arms the number is 90.858 in both cases.
  • Besançon ( Franche Comté), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 57.556 (sheets) or 60.637 (bound), but in the description of the arms the number is 60.637 in both cases.
  • Nancy (Lorraine), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 60.306 (sheets) or 120.518 (bound), but in the description of the arms the number is 120.518 in both cases.
  • Verdun (Meuse) : there is a small change in the text :
    • sheets :Ville très fortifiée, se défendant courageusement à la guerre 1914-1918.
    • bound : Ville très fortifiée, qui se défendit courageusement pendant la guerre 1914-1918.
  • Épinal (Vosges), the sheets mention "de la Gaule Belge", the bound volume only "la Gaule".
  • Lyon (Lyonnais), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 466.767 (sheets) or 570.840 (bound), but in the description of the arms the number is 570.840 in both cases.
  • Chambéry (Savoie), in the descripion of the region the number of inhabitants is 21.700 (sheets) or 25.407 (bound), but in the description of the arms the number is 25.407 in both cases.
