28 February, 1973 CE
The following devices, Arms and badges have been rejected by the Imperial College of Arms for the reasons given:
1) Genvieve des Cours. Vert, a tree Or, bearing human hearts gules.
This is too close to "Vert, a tree eradicated argent" registered to Ioseph of Locksley. Change the colour of the field.
2) William of Ness. Argent, a drakkars sable, garnished gules, the sail argent charged with a wolf's head erased sinister facing sable between two pallets gules, a pennon gules at maintop, between in dexter chief an anchor and in sinister base a dagger inverted sable; all between two pales gules.
Great God and little Thor's hammers! This device is:
a. conflicting with many others (see Aten's letter of comment.)
a. too damn complex.
We suggest that you use a simple drakkar on a single tincture field, between two pales. Leave out all the other garbage.
3) Tesrig Gewisse. Gules, a cross azure fimbriated argent; in canton a boar's head couped azure fimbriated argent.
Well.... "Gules, a cross azure fimbriated argent" is, of course, the national flag of Norway. The addition of the Boar's head to our thinking, is not sufficient differencing. Do a little research on crosses and come up with something a little more original.
