(administered by the Brickbat Herald)


Unto Their Royal Majesties Phelan and Amirah; Master Seamus, Aten Principal Herald; the Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Greetings of the New Year from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

This is the May 2011 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. It precedes the external Letter of Intent that will contain the following submissions that are presented here, asking questions of submitters and local heralds who have worked with them; if these questions are not addressed, the submission may be returned by the Atenveldt College of Heralds. Where there any submissions this month, know that I accept online commentary, in addition to questions pertaining to heraldry and consultation. You can send commentary to me privately at or join “Atenveldt Submissions Commentary” at Yahoo! Groups ( ) and post there. (Commentary is likely be included in the next month's Letter of Presentation so that all may learn from it, and we can see how additional documentation or comments may have influenced a submission. Please don't be shy!)

Please have commentary to me for those submissions under consideration for the May 2011 Atenveldt Letter of Intent by 15 May 2011. Thanks!

Upcoming Consultation Tables: There will be a Kingdom Heraldic Consultation Table at Atenveldt Coronation on Saturday, 7 June (Shire of Granholme/Casa Grande AZ). There will also be a Kingdom Heraldic Consultation Table at Kingdom Collegium on Saturday, 4 June (Barony of Sundragon/Wickenburg AZ). If you can spend a little time there with consultations (or if you have clients that you'd like to steer in the Table's direction), you are very welcome to sit on the “heralds' side” to the Table! Atenveldt submissions through the end of 2010 have been acted upon by the College of Arms, so this is an exciting time, maybe to help with resubmissions, or to inform folks of the final status of their submissions!

Speaking of submissions: I accept direct-to-Kingdom submissions from heraldic clients; this might not be the most favorable route to take, particularly if a group has a territorial herald, and everyone can stay more in the “submission loop” if a submission is made in this fashion. However, in some cases, this is the only reasonable and timely way for a submission to be made. Local heralds need to send submissions on in a timely manner as well. If you cannot connect with me at an event (very likely) or attend Heraldry Hut, submissions need to be mailed within one month of a local herald receiving them, unless there is a reason for return at the local level. My address: Linda Miku, 2527 E. 3rd Street, Tucson AZ 85716.

Heraldry Hut: The next Heraldry Hut will be held Friday, 20 May. For more information, directions, etc., please contact me at your convenience

( ).

Submissions Website: You can send electronic commentary on the most recent internal LoIs through the site, in addition to any questions you might have. Current submission forms (the ONLY forms that can be used) can be found on the site. Please let your local populace know about the site, too:

College of Arms Actions: Atenveldt registrations and returns made at the February and March 2011 Laurel meetings (submissions found on the November and December 2010 Atenveldt LoIS) are found at the end of this report.

Please consider the following submissions for the May 2011 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:

Cáelinn ingen Chatháin (Mons Tonitrus): DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, January 2011
Argent, two axes crossed in saltire and on a point pointed vert a rapier inverted Or.

The name was registered January 2011.

The original device was returned because “the emblazon blurs the distinction between a per chevron field and a point pointed. Blazoned as a point pointed, it is emblazoned as the lower quarter of a per saltire field, not truly per chevron but too close to per chevron to be considered a point pointed.” The device has been redrawn, to set the line of division higher on the field and to cross the axes in saltire at a more typical point, closer to the center of the hafts.

Honour Grenehart (Granholme): NEW ALTERNATE NAME, Umm Sitt al-Jami' `Ismat al-Nabila

The primary persona name was registered January 1999. The alternate name Umm Sitt al-Jami' `Ismat was registered July 2009. The client wishes to add the al-Nabila, “the honourable/ the highborn,” to the alternate name. Al-Nabil is a masculine laqab, a combination of words into a byname or epithet, usually religious, relating to nature, a descriptive, or of some admirable quality the person had (or would like to have); it is found in “Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices,” Da'ud ibn Auda ( ). Da'ud notes in his article that “many of the masculine given names can be feminized by the addition of "a" or "ah" to the end (for example, the masculine Khalid can be found feminized as Khalida(h),” hence al-Nabil becoming al-Nabila. The author specifically notes that this is not a name denoting rank, although it could be argued that the client is Honour(able) and is also a Companion of the Crescent (which carries a Grant of Arms), 13 June 1999. The client doesn't care about the gender of the name, although Umm, “mother of,” would make it a feminine one.

Randolph Caparulo (Mons Tonitrus): NEW DEVICE

Per pale and chevronelly inverted Or and azure.

The name appears in the 20 March 2011 Atenveldt Letter of Intent.

The blazon is taken from the armory of Walthari von Harx, Per pale wavy and chevronelly Or and vert.

Stella Dellaluna (Brymstone): NEW NAME and DEVICE

Purpure mullety, a schneke issuant from sinister Or.

The name is Northern Italian. Stella is a feminine given name found in “Names from Sixteenth Century Venice,” Juliana de Luna ( ). Dellaluna is a family name found in “Florentine Renaissance Resources: Online Tratte of Office Holders 1282-1532,” David Herlihy, editor ( ). The client desires a feminine name and is most interested in the meaning (none given, but I suspect references to the stars and the moon) and the language/culture of the name (Italian).

The following submissions appear in the April 2011 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:

Commentary is provided by Helena de Argentoune [HdA], James of the Lake[JotL], Ines Alfón [IA], Maridonna Benvenuti [MB] and Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy [MMM].

`Ā'isha al-Zakiyya bint Yazīd al-Mayūrqī (Twin Moons): NEW NAME

Alistair Stewart (Twin Moons): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Quarterly sable and azure, a cross argent charged with three triskeles in fess sable.

Anastasia filia Maguch (Twin Moons): NEW DEVICE: Argent, on a bend sable between two sheaves of lilacs purpure slipped and leaved vert banded purpure a peacock feather Or.

Arthur O'Flaherty (Twin Moons): NEW BADGE: Or, a sun gules charged with a dragon segreant contourny argent, a bordure gules.

The name was registered November 1989.

Bran Padraig of Antrim (Twin Moons): CHANGE OF HOLDING NAME, from Bran of Twin Moons

He still hasn't given any documentation for the use of double given names or unmarked patronyms in Irish Gaelic during our period. <Bran Padraig> is *not* registerable without either of this. The only way to fix this is to drop <Padraig> (or <Bran>), or to make <Padraig> into a marked patronymic byname, <mac Padraig>.

Unfortunately, he also still hasn't given any documentation for <Antrim> being a period name of the city; the citation from MacLysaght merely shows that the city existed before the 17th C, but not that it was _called_ Antrim in that period, which is what is required in order for a locative byname based on <Antrim> to be registerable.

Given his documentation, the closest registerable name to what he's submitted is the form recommended by Laurel in the previous return:

<Bran mac Padraig>. [AmC]

No luck so far on finding the pre-1600 map that I'd found previously. However, I did find the following stating that a region known as "Antrim" was part of the "shiring of Ulster" in the 16th C. and that "Antrim" was a recognized division of that region prior to the 14th C. Perhaps this will lead us to a usable citation:
"At what date the county of Antrim was formed is not known, but it appears that a certain district bore this name before the reign of Edward II (early 14th century), and when the shiring of Ulster was undertaken by Sir John Perrot in the 16th century, Antrim and Down were already recognized divisions, in contradistinction to the remainder of the province. The earliest known inhabitants were of Celtic origin, and the names of the townlands or subdivisions, supposed to have been made in the 13th century, are all of Gaelic derivation. Antrim was exposed to the inroads of the Danes, and also of the northern Scots, who ultimately effected permanent settlements. In ancient times, it was inhabited by a Celtic people called the Darini. In the early Middle Ages, southern County Antrim was part of the Kingdom of Ulidia, ruled by the Dál Fiatach clans O'Haughey/O'Hoey and MacDonlevy/McDunlavey; the north was part of Dal Riada, which stretched into western Scotland over the Irish Sea. Dal Riada was ruled by the O'Lynch clan, who were vassals of the Ulidians. Besides the Ulidians and Dal Riada, there were the Dal nAraide of lower County Antrim, and the Cruithne, who were not Gaelic Celts but Picts. In the late Middle Ages, it was divided into three parts: northern Clandeboy, the Glynnes and the Route. The Cambro-Norman MacQuillans were powerful in the Route. A branch of the O'Neills of Tyrone migrated to Clandeboy in the 1300s, and ruled it for a time. Their family was called O'Neill Clannaboy. A galloglass sept, the MacDonnells, became the most powerful in the Glynnes in the 1400s.[ ]

Haven't had much luck on finding a primary source for this info, but it's here:
"The counties of Ireland were created between the late 12th century, when the Anglo Normans invaded, and the early 17th century and tend to follow the ancient lines drawn between powerful clan families.

Dublin was the first county to be set up with a sheriff empowered with legal, military and administrative controls. From that point, the process of creating the counties of Ireland spread out mainly eastwards and did not reach the north until the early 1600s. Antrim and Down were the first Ulster counties created, with the rest remaining 'un-shired' until about 1585. It was Wicklow, however, that in 1606 became the very last of the counties of Ireland to be formed."

[ ] [HdA]

"Antrim. In Irish, the county is called Aon troim, meaning Solitary place. It is not so solitary these days, with a population density of 199/km2, second only to Dublin. Its spectacular Causeway Coast, a UNESCO Heritage Site, is a stawart of the Irish tourism industry.

It is situated in the province of Ulster and is part of Northern Ireland (UK). In land area, it is the 9th largest of the thirty-two traditional counties of Ireland but it is second only to co. Dublin in terms of size of population. Its main towns are Antrim, Ballymena, Ballymoney, Belfast, Carrickfergus and Lisburn, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Giant's Causeway, is on its north coast. There are two nicknames for folks from Antrim (both usually restricted to sporting references): the Glensmen and the Saffrons.

Linen manufacturing was once an important industry in Antrim and vast swathes of flax were cultivated in the countryside. (More about Irish Linen and the flax plant.)

Antrim's most common surnames in 1890 were Smith, Johnston, Stewart, Wilson, Thompson, O·Neill, Campbell, Moore, Bell, Robinson, Millar, Brown, Boyd, Scott and Graham.

Griffith's Valuation was carried out in Antrim in 1861." [ ] [HdA]
There's more interesting stuff here:
Antrim = English spelling
Aontroim = Irish spelling
ALL research appears to agree that Antrim was part of the "shiring of Ulster" in the 16th C. [HdA]

The Irish connection got me thinking. There was definitely a monastic settlement in Antrim in the 10th century. The Antrim Round Tower still stands to mark the site within the Borough of Antrim (

Found this full-text history of the area documenting royal activity and ownership from post-Roman times - Antrim features many times.

An historical account of the Diocese of Down and Connor, ancient and modern (1878) Volume 1 by O'Laverty, James

( ). There may be alternate spellings to Antrim... will continue [AdC]

Good leads. :) Will try to follow the monastic angle to hunt down more breadcrumbs.
We know that Antrim county existed pre-1600 (Antrim was part of "the shiring of Ulster" mid-16th C.). It's the spelling of it -- either English or Irish -- that we need to know. There are _no_ extant maps from that time which include county "Antrim" in any spelling. There is a map from the 14th and a 15th C. copy of one drawn by Ptolemy (dates about 8th C.). But there were _no_ new maps of Ireland commissioned after the 14th C. one until after The Shiring of Ulster. At that point, Queen Elizabeth commissioned several -- but they all say "Ulster" with _no_ mention of Antrim. What we need now are extant docs from the time (some legal doc somewhere) showing some so-snd-so did <something, bough/sold/rented/born/died/etc> in "Antrim" in some spelling.
I've checked all the references that I can dig up. Closest I've gotten so far are all 18th C. maps. They tell me the layout but are no help on the spelling. [HdA]

Unfortunately, it's post "shiring of Ulster" and doesn't show Antrim. Grrr..... But it's an AWESOME map!!!
( ) There's a 1300s map of Ireland too, I just couldn't get it zoom'd enough to try to read it. [HdA]

Getting closer!!!! ( ) Consolidated research from assorted sites seem to agree that the earliest map of Ireland is a 16th copy of one that Ptolemy created in 140 AD. But that copy is not the earliest extant map. The earliest extant map is the second one on this page -- it dates to the 1300s. Based on the research I've done this afternoon, it seems to indicate that we need to find some literary rather than geographic source for this damn spelling. [HdA]

off of CELT: "The History of Ireland” (Foras Feasa ar Éirinn (Book I-II)) (Author: Geoffrey Keating) c. 1640 Section 23, pg 100-101 "... , as Raghnall son of Samhairle, Earl of Antrim, or Aondrom, descended from Colla Uais ..." and ( )

"... , mar atá Raghnall mac Samhairle Iarla Antruim nó nAondroma ó Cholla Uais ..." I hope this is a start. [IA]

Oooh! Nice! Looks like the translation hasn't normalized the spellings either. :D (It has a d)ate of 1640. That gets us into "the gray area" and gives us a justification for using "Antrim" as an Anglicized version of "Aondrom." (Right, Marta?) [HdA]

Caoilinn inghean Fhaelchon (Twin Moons): NEW NAME CHANGE, from Duncan of Kilernan

Colm Kile of Lochalsh (Granholme): ALTERNATE NAME, Colm before the storm, and BADGE RESUBMISSIONS from Laurel, June 2010

Per bend sinister sable and azure, in bend an Aeolus argent blowing to sinister base, overall two scarpes Or.

Helena de Argentoune (Twin Moons): NEW ALTERNATE NAME, Helen Welez, and NEW BADGE: (Fieldless) A wagon wheel per bend sable and gules enflamed Or.

Johann der Becker von Aschersleben (Windale): NEW NAME

John Ailewrde (Twin Moons): DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, September 2009: Per pale vert and gules, in pale three wolves dormant contourny argent

Kedivor Tal ap Cadugon (BoAtenveldt): NEW ALTERNATE NAME, Oygudei Chagan Bar

The primary persona name was registered December 1999.

The name is Mongolian. Oyugun means “wise, wisdom,” (“On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names,” Baras-aghur Naran, ). The same source notes that The -dai/-dei suffix shows possession (as do similar suffixes -tai and -tei); a name such as Chagatai, constructed from the root chagan (“white”), which means “he who is white,” likely someone with a pale complexion or perhaps a lighter hair color than one might expect. Hence the byname Oyugudei would mean “he who has/possesses wisdom.” It also seems, from the example, that the terminal -n is omitted to form this type of descriptive term.

Chagan means “white” and Bar means “tiger” (An Introduction to Classical (Literary) Mongolian, K. Gronbech and J.R. Kruger, Ottoe Harrassowitz, Wiesbaden, 1976 ISBN 3-447-01661-2, p. 65 as čaγan...transliterated as chagan (white) p. 63 (tiger); it seems that the word for tiger is bars. I've found the term for white transliterated as Chaghagan, Chaghan and Cagan, so Chagan isn't unreasonable. Chagan Bar is a descriptive name, “White Tiger.” I would tend to make a compound name from this, Chaganbar(s), as is noted in Gülügjab's article ( ) of <adjective+noun>. The order of name elements appears to be changeable, often just because one order “sounds better” than another (“Mongolian Naming Practices,”Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy).

The client desires a male name, and is most interested in the meaning of the name “wise white tiger.”

Stephan MacGrath (BoAtenveldt): CHANGE OF HOLDING NAME from Stephan of Atenveldt, November 2007

Tanne Atzler (Sundragon): NEW NAME

Tomyris Benenati (Twin Moons): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Azure vetu ployé, a lucy naiant embowed counterembowed argent.

The name is Italian. Tomyris is found in Academy of Saint Gabriel report 3006 ( ): “We also know, as you discovered, that <Tomyris> was used by a late 15th century northern Italian woman, <Tomyris Macachio>.” The citations for this are "RAMUSIO", LoveToKnow 1911 Online Encyclopedia (WWW: LoveToKnow, 2003, 2004). (a dead link) and Internet Archive, . Googling Tomyris Macachio has several hits. She was wife of the artist Paolo Ramusio, Paolo The Elder (c. 1443-1506) according to . Benenati is a patronymic, “of Benato, found in Caracausi, Girolamo, Dizionario Onomastico della Sicilia, Girolamo Caracusi, 1994, s.n. Benenati, "da lat. crist. Benenātus 'nato bene'... cfr... magister Benenatus medicus (a. 1287), Bonanatus Algerius (a. 1292). Maridonna's translation of the citation: of the Christian Latin Benenātus 'good birth'[or possibly 'good son']... compare... master Benanatus doctor (a. 1287), Bonanatus man from algeria (a. 1292). [MB] The byname is also found in Dizionario Dei Cognomi Pugliesi, Pantoleo Mierrvini, pp. 86-87 s.n. Bène. The client contacted me and provided photocopies of her receipts, name submission form, and photocopied documentation for the name! Yay! (Of course, I still have no idea where my copies of the forms went... [MMM]

Wolfgang Von Luxemburg (Sundragon): NEW NAME

Reviewing the submission, the given name is spelled Wolffgang, which is found in Aryanhwy's “German Names from Nürnberg, 1497” article. The byname was registered to Konrad von Luxemburg August 2010, and it was noted in the August 2010 LoAR that “commenters were able to find the period spelling Lutzenburg ( ) and Luxembourg ( ) (both are found in the Braun & Hogenberg map of 1581-88). The submitted form is a reasonable interpolation between these documented forms.” The preposition von should not be capitalized. [MMM]

The following submissions have been returned by the Atenveldt CoH for further work, April 2011:

Tanne Atzler: NEW DEVICE: Sable, a pall inverted cotised Or.

Consider Þorgrímr inn snjalli: Sable, a pall inverted between three serpents involved Or. I am unsure of this one. I think the following may be the thing that my brain was trying to tell me at Estrella but I just couldn't come up with it at the time. Cotises are considered to be secondary charges. However, the registered submission above only has secondaries -- no cotises. This might be counted as just a change of secondary charges -- from serpents to cotises -- in which case, the above is a conflict. If so, changing the cotises to argent would clear it in a heartbeat. [HdA]

Multiple attempts to contact the client failed. I have no choice but to return the device. [MMM]

RETURNED for conflict.

The following submissions were registered by the S.C.A. College of Arms at its February 2011 meetings:

Berkedei Kökösara. Name.

Jocet De La Cour. Name and device. Per bend sinister azure and argent, a crab and a dragon's head couped counterchanged.

Commenters questioned whether the capitalization of the preposition and article in a French byname like this can be justified. While it is unusual, Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "French Surnames from Paris, 1421, 1423 & 1438" gives examples with a variety of capitalization conventions, including a l'Espée, A l'Espée, and A L'Espée, as well as Du bastard Jolis. This variety of capitalization is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt.

Kolos Siklósi. Device. Per fess azure and vert, a fess embattled and in chief a drinking horn fesswise argent.

Please instruct the submitter to draw the fess wider to better fill the available space.

Michièle MacBean. Device. Per bend vert and Or, a spoon bendwise inverted argent and an empty wooden drop spindle bendwise proper.

This modern depiction of a drop spindle is a step from period practice.

Robert Heinrich. Device. Quarterly sable and gules, an estoile and on a chief Or three Latin crosses bottony sable.

Rúadhán Mac Dubhghaill. Name and device. Per chevron gules and sable, on a chevron argent three broad arrows inverted each per pale gules and sable.

Submitted as Rúadán Mac Dhubhgaill, this name mixes a Middle Gaelic given name with an Early Modern Gaelic byname, which is a step from period practice (but registerable). One change is necessary to make that form registerable; the patronym is misspelled and should be Dhubhghaill.

The most typical Early Modern Gaelic form (suitable for from 1200-1600) is Rúadhán Mac Dubhghaill. By the 16th century, some masculine bynames are occasionally lenited, giving Rúadhán Mac Dhubhghaill.

Howevever, the submitter requested authenticity for mid-13th century Irish. We have not found lenition in masculine bynames that early. Therefore, we have changed the name to the typical Early Modern Gaelic form in order to meet that request.

Siobhan Lindsay. Name and device. Per pale argent and sable, a mortar and pestle counterchanged.

This name mixes a Gaelic given name with a Scots byname; this is a step from period practice.

Zhigmun' Czypsser. Name change from Zhigmun' Broghammer.

This name mixes a Russian given name with a German byname; this is a step from period practice.

His previous name, Zhigmun' Broghammer, is retained as an alternate name.

The following submissions have been returned by the College of Arms for further work, January 2011:

Kendrick MacBain. Device. Per bend sinister Or and vert, a wooden stick shuttle bendwise sinister proper and an awl bendwise sinister point to base argent.

This device is returned because the charge in base was not identifiable solely by its appearance, as required by section VII.7.a of the Rules for Submissions. Many of them thought it was a spoon. Additionally, while the charge does have the outline of a perfectly functional modern awl, there was no evidence provided that this form of awl was a medieval form, though commenters provided several period depictions. Section VII.3 of the Rules for Submissions requires artifacts to be drawn in their medieval forms.

Please refer the submitter to the August 2005 LoAR, which include two images of acceptable awls depicted under the returns for the badge of Gwenlian Catharne, at

Victoria of the Vales of Barnsdale. Augmentation. Or, an insect-winged naked woman passant, wings chased, azure, and as an augmentation on a canton azure in pale a coronet and a sun in his glory issuant from base Or within a bordure argent.

Three questions were asked when this was pended from the September 2010 LoAR, though we will address them in a different order than they were asked.

First, should the augmentation be allowed to have minimal contrast with the underlying design? Since we have only a single period example of an augmentation that does not have good contrast with the underlying design, augmentations in the SCA may not break the Rule of Tincture with respect to the underlying device. This upholds the following precedent:

The basic question raised by this submission is can an augmentation break the rule of tincture? ... only one example of period use of an augmentation breaking the rule of tincture was found. Barring documentation of large numbers of period augmentations that break the rule of tincture, we are unwilling to register this practice. (LoAR August 1997 p. 26)

Therefore, this augmentation is returned because the argent bordure of the augmentation has insufficient contrast with the Or field of the base armory.

Secondly, the question was asked whether or not coronets are usable in augmentations. Victoria is allowed to have a coronet on her arms, as she is a viscountess. We are extending this permission to explicitly allow coronets on augmentations for anyone who is allowed to display a coronet in their base armory. However, adding the coronet to the augmentation means that it is not the standard augmentation of Atenveldt. Standard augmentations must be used exactly as they are designated by the kingdom. Since this is not the kingdom augmentation, the augmentation conflicts with the standard augmentation of the kingdom of Atenveldt. Since Victoria was awarded her augmentation by the kingdom of Atenveldt, there is implicit permission to conflict, and this is not an issue.

Additionally, since the augmentation is not the kingdom augmentation, it must be conflict checked normally. Because it needs to be conflict checked, it was asked if the Or charges on the augmentation were primary and secondary charges, or if they were co-primary charges, since this decision changes what it conflicts with. Even though the sun issues from the edge of the field, commenters agreed that the sun and coronet are co-primary charges. Therefore, this augmentation is in conflict with the device of Reneé d'Avranches, Azure, two garbs in pale Or and a bordure argent. Since there are three types of charge on Victoria's augmentation (sun, coronet, bordure), the two may not be compared using section X.2 of the Rules for Submissions. There is, therefore, a single CD for completely changing the types of the primary charge group. Therefore, since augmentations must themselves be clear of conflict, the submission is also returned for this reason.

The following submissions were registered by the S.C.A. College of Arms at its February 2011 meetings:

Akita Sakiko. Reblazon of device. Per pale argent and sable, two domestic cats sejant respectant counterchanged.

Blazoned when registered, in July 2009, as Per pale argent and sable, in chief two domestic cats sejant respectant counterchanged, the cats really aren't displaced so far from the center of the field that they should be blazoned in chief. They are displaced slightly to chief because of the shape of the shield.
Dietrich Kurneck von Hammerstein. Reblazon of device. (Fieldless) A sinister mailed fist aversant sable sustaining stalks of grain Or.

Blazoned when registered as (Fieldless) A sinister mailed fist aversant sable grasping stalks of grain Or, we are clarifying the relative sizes of the charges.
Eilica Weiss. Name and device. Or, a pale checky azure and argent, overall a heart gules.

Commenters questioned whether Weiss was an appropriate spelling. Brechenmacher gives Weiß as a header form and dates it to 1313. Weiss is a reasonable variant.
Fenwick of Gloster. Reblazon of device. Vert, a brown water buffalo passant proper.

Blazoned when registered as Vert, a water buffalo [Bubalus bubalis] passant proper, we are clarifying the tincture of the charge and dropping the Linnean term from the blazon.
Leticia Troischesnes. Badge. Checky gules and argent, a legless chicken contourny Or.
Marta as-tu Mika-Mysliwy. Blanket permission to conflict with name and device. Per chevron vert and Or, in base a satyr dancing and piping proper.
