Re: Assumed Arms in England

Also, IIRC at some point (?? when ??) Parliament imposed a tax on any arms used in public, whether or not they were granted or otherwise recognized by the College of Arms. While that taxation was later discontinued, it did demonstrate official Crown (via Parliament) categorical recognition of arms w...

Re: Jonathon G. Sizemore No.0583

Very nice design! Including both gold and copper leaves is unusual - maybe unique? - but to my mind, it works well visually. (But for purposes of uniqueness - to avoiding possible duplication - I would treat the two copper leaves "as if" all three leaves were gold or "Proper" autumn leaves - otherwi...

Re: Martim Silva Pinto Correia No 0575

Nice simple design. Curious as to why this is so totally different from the arms his brother designed for their father? (I assume his brother bears or will bear the sane arms as their father?)

Re: Mans Nicklas Lidgren, Baron of Elie No.0577

I teresting design. In the blazon I would have expected the fish nia to be specified ady "fesswise in pale" -as written, it could easy suggest four charges in a horizontal lines star-fish-fish-star; but since it's apparently quoted from the grant from Lyon, it is what it is ;) The fess strongly sugg...

Re: Isabel Maria Salvado Silva Pinto-Correia No.0576

Nice simple design. I questioned the use of a priest's galero as a charge; but after reading the design rationale, it makes sense to me (though I suspect some others will question or dislike it for religious reasons).

Re: Filip-Lucian Iorga Phd. No.0573

I'm also a member of that forum - or rather, mostly a spectator, at the mercy of Google translator. As far as I can tell, the examples of multiple helmets & crests seem to be nobles - notably patents of nobility & arms by various sovereigns - rather than arms assumed by commoners. But that may be a ...

The arms are quite attractive! - though dual helmets & crests in a new design is surprising. Maybe it's a Romanian "thing"...

Re: Heraldic Badge of Northern Ireland

Flax has been used as a floral badge, similar to English Tudor roses & Scottish thistles. I don't know how historic the flax may be as an heraldic badge.

Interesting design:- good example of "indeterminate cadency" from the historic McCabe arms cited in the rationale - and nicely emblazoned.
