3. Dominic de Grae: DEVICE RESUMISSION from Laurel, June 2017
Vert, an owl striking argent, on a chief wavy Or a moon in her plenitude azure between two mullets vert.
name was registered June 2017.
original device submission, Vert,
an owl striking argent, on a chief wavy Or a moon in her plenitude
azure between two mullets vert.,
was returned “for use of two tertiary charge groups on the same
charge. In this design, the mullets on either side of the moon are
substantially smaller, making them appear to be subordinate to the
moon in size and importance. If the tertiary charges were equivalent
in size, they would be part of a single tertiary charge group and
this device would be registerable. Upon resubmission, we encourage
the submitter to make the mullets the same size as the moon, ideally
by modifying the frequency of the waves that form the chief so that
each charge has its own undulation in which to appear.”
