"There is no religion higher than TRUTH"

Does anyone know where one can find an icon of St. Harold of England (Godwinson)?

Note : Many of my posts (especially the ones antedating late 2012) do not reflect charity, tact, or even views I presently hold. Please forgive me for any antagonism I have caused.

While I eagerly await--though not holding my breath--the official canonisation of King Harold (and his companions), as far as I know it has not been done. Nor have I found any ikons...

It does seem difficult to find confirmation of (St?) Harold's canonisation, but this OrthodoxWiki article explains the situation in detail. No icons or links to one that I can find.

Personal veneration is permissible, though you won't find him commemorated in a church service.
