Anita de Challis (Twin Moons): AUGMENTATION OF ARMS RESUBMISSION from Laurel, April 2016: Gules, a seeblatt and a chief doubly-arched Or, and as an augmentation on a canton gules a sun and a moon in her plenitude in pale within a bordure argent.
The original augmentation, Gules, a seeblatt and a chief doubly-arched Or, and as an augmentation on a canton gules a sun and a moon in her plenitude in pale within a bordure Or., was returned for contrast issues. “SENA A3a3 states "Because an augmentation adds complexity, augmented devices are often allowed to violate certain style rules, such as allowing charges on tertiary charges or a complexity count of greater than eight, as long as the identifiability of the design is maintained. However, they may not violate the rules on contrast." Here, there is no contrast between the Or bordure of the canton and the Or chief and so this must be returned.” Changing the bordure of the augmentation to argent provides adequate contrast with the chief.

Caell Robertson (TM): DEVICE CHANGE REUBMISSION from Laurel, December 2014: Sable, two bat-winged, scorpion-tailed lions combatant Or and a bordure rayonny argent.

Elizabeth Æthelwulfes dohtor (Twin Moons): NEW BADGE: Per pale gules and sable, a Kolovrat and in chief a coronet Or.

Thomas de Groet notes in the Atenveldt Letter of Presentation that the use of this charge was deemed offensive by the Ansteorran College of Heralds and apparently returned (Ansteorra ILoI dated 02-08-16), because it is a symbol associated with Neo-Nazism. Neither book that I have that might address this, Badges and Insignia of the Third Reich, 1934-1945, by Brian L. Davis and Malcolm McGregor, and The Swastika: Symbol Beyond Redemption?, by Steven Heller, do not mention or illustrate the kolovrat at all (for the record, Heller, a graphic artist, does come to the conclusion that the swastika should continue to be a prohibited symbol). It appears fairly commonly in jewelry sold on Etsy, as a Slavic amulet. I don't think that this symbol's permission or prohibition has been finally ruled upon by the College of Arms, and so I am sending on the submission.

Mons Tonitrus, Barony of: NEW BADGE: Sable, a thunderbolt between flaunches argent all within a bordure denticulada counterchanged.

Ulrica Anna of Twin Moons (TM): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Per pale argent and vert, a dragon segreant contourny sable and a dandelion blossom Or.

ffride wlffsdotter provided excellent documentation for the name. Further consultation with the client reagarding problems with the device resolved these issues, and the device being submitted is Per pale raguly argent and vert, a dragon segreant contourny sable and a dandelion slipped and leaved Or.
