Re: Claes Zangenberg, Baron of Pittenweem No.0431

Personally, I would blazon Mr Z's arms: Or on a Pile inverted Vert a Scroll Argent with seal pendant (of the first), in chief two Maunches Gules . Though, since the maunches are arguably not in chief one could even say: Or between two Maunches Gules on a Pile inverted Vert a Scroll Argent with seal...

Do you have a Badge?

I found it interesting that there were no posts for badges. I am posting my badges with hopes that others will follow suit. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r190/howiedunnet/heraldry/11703134_10205874815242782_7101757270044152219_n%20copy%20Smaller.png The compass rose represents my love of cartog...

Re: Lord Lyon Proclamation at Edinburgh 1888.

I am familiar with the bonnet, but what they are wearing in the print, as far as I can tell, does not resemble a bonnet. Hmmm, I suppose I will have to purchase this print to investigate. :)

Re: Dieter Bryant Rudolph No.0407

I am sure that the emblazonment reflects accurately what the armiger had in mind. But were they starting from the blazon I suspect that the majority of heraldic artists would depict the mullets and plate considerably larger than this illustration. It does seem that the mullets and the plate should ...

Re: Blazon Queery

My apologies! I am late to the discussion. I was trying solicit assistance from the Facebook group to clean up the blazon, but the next thing I knew, Mr. Lloyd had registered. I was preparing to change the dragon to red, but then ceased all actions when I saw the link to his registration. By the way...

Re: Conundrum

A clever blazon. I also don't understand why they used "bend Reversed" rather than "bend sinister." Nonetheless, an interesting bit of history here: http://ssc.ca/en/about/history-ssc/an-i ... at-of-arms.
