UNESCO Weathervanes

 The Loire Valley between Chalonnes and Sully sur Loire has been declared a World Heritage Site since 2000. Throughout the area you will encounter these windvanes or standards (called girouets in French). The top and bottom motifs are the same on all of them, showing the UNESCO symbol at the top and the World Heritage logo at the bottom. Between the two will be a motif symbolising each individual town or village. This one depicts Saint Martin.

3 points if you can tell me where this UNESCO girouet is.
Quiz Update:  Congratulations to Dean France who is exactly right and wins all 3 points.

Hi Susan, I'll say that it's the girouet à Rivière, near Chinon.
