What, MORE heraldry? Don't you have enough?

I have a free resubmission from when my pelican-within-a-knight's-chain badge got returned. One slot left, so I'm trying to decide carefully what to submit.

Why would you have submitted a pelican-within-a-knight's-chain anyways? I'm not sure I get it.

It'll be easier to just send you to the submission itself.

Ah HA! Now I see what's up. Thank you for the link.

What's a Suffolk knot?

It's an obscure knot that Bruce found. It looks like this:

OOh looks like a drunk pretzel. I like it. :D

Most of the drunkenness comes from my hastily assembling the image in paint.

What of this list has some meaning for you? If you are just getting stuff to get stuff, that seems a bit silly.

They all have meaning. This is the "best of the best" list, having weeded out things like Bruce's suggestion of "(fieldless) a demi-Moor proper." The Suffolk knot by itself has the least meaning of the group, but also has the some of the highest potential for display.

What's a swan in her piety? And isn't that likely to conflict with a pelican? Ditto a wreath of oak or holly?

A swan in her piety is a swan in the typical "pelican in her piety" pose. And yes, it would probably conflict. Not so with the wreaths, though. There have been plenty of non-laurel wreaths registered by people over the years, including Caid for their "Children of Caidan Crescents" badge, which has a beautiful oak wreath on it.

It should be noted that the swan suggestion is a joke by Istvan, and not necessarily anything I'd submit.

The swan suggestion is most certainly a joke.

Oak wreaths/chaplets are rare but not unheard of: 9 individuals (and 5 branches) have registered armory containing one. There are also two holly wreaths. None of these conflict with a plain old Or wreath on fieldless... but I'm reasonably certain that current precedent says there isn't a CD between a wreath of oak and a wreath of laurel, to the O.L. badge itself might be a conflict at present.

Why am I not surprised that Istvan suggested the swan one as a joke? OTOH, a typical swan would probably try to vuln *you* first before vulning itself. *Especially* a mama swan.

As late as August of 2002, Jessimond of Emerickeskepe had registered: "(Fieldless) An oak wreath fructed proper." So unless things have changed since then (I didn't find any precedent to counter it, and Jessimond's badge was registered without comment) I think I'm in the clear for either. But if it is a conflict, then I'll have conflicted with each of the three peerages' badges in my submission history. Gotta catch 'em all!
