Re: Matthew Pajares Yngson No.0505

An interesting, if busy, design.

The flag of Dominica - mostly black, yellow, and green - doesn't have the black & green adjacent to each other. Curious why the arms don't have the yellow between the black & green, similar to the white between the red & blue on the dexter side.

Re: My new heraldic artwork

But which of the two ancient Dock arms? ;) Plausible arguments could be made for (or against) either choice, with your own arms in a canton - easy with Dock St, but would obscure most of the demi-ragle of Dock Jr. or for (or against) quartering the two Dock arms with your own arms as an inescutcheon...

Re: My new heraldic artwork

Quartering old & new is one approach - in this case, maybe 1&4 Nelson (since that's your branch's legal surname in America), 2 Dock, 3 the other Dock? Or quarterly of enough to include thebmaternsl arms of your Docks. And for motto, below the shield maybe "What's Up, Docks?" And above the crest of a...

Re: My new heraldic artwork

Seb - how long ago did you assume your current arms?
And have them certified by the Spanish Cronist?
And then matriculated by Lyon? Etc.

Why not just add them to an expanded version of your Swedish armorisl pedigree?

Re: Godfrey Devlin, Baron of Gogar No.0488

Nice design! - you've also recently posted an entry for his son, same artwork with a red cadency label. One correction - the first sentence of the rationale mentions "the Scottish Heraldry Society" - should be "the Heraldry Society of Scotland". The design of these arms is clearly based on those of ...

"Canton of affection" - quite unusual, if not unique; but if it serves a significant purpose, and given mutual consent, why not?

Re: James R.G. Devlin, Lord of Cowal No0484

Nice design - simple and clean. Apparently , in effect "indeterminate cadency" from the Irish Devlin chiefs - Azure a Celtic cross Or between three stars, I don't recall if also Or or Argent.

Interesting fellow - from the name, Scandinavian roots; sailing (so to speak) all over the world; and ending up in Brazil. And an interesting design - I'd forgotten that the Southern Cross isn't uniquely Australian! First I'd heard the term "wind-rose" - something new to learn every day! (FWIW, I'd ...
