Rouge Scarpe writes:

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned. This badge has several problems. A translation of the motto needs to be provided. Also the words used must be shown to be period and no documentation was provided. This was the primary cause of return at Kingdom.

Precedent: [(Fieldless) A Maltese cross gules within and conjoined to an annulet sable charged with the words "Antiquity Camaradery Generosity" argent] Words that are used in armory must be period. As the earliest date that could be found for "Camaradery" in any spelling is late 17th century, this word is not allowable on armory barring evidence of its use in period. [Leifr Hrólfsson and Lucia de la Valette, 04/04, A-Drachenwald]

Further the "circular strip" looks a lot like the belt strap that Scottish clan chiefs used around their badges.

[Argent, a fox's mask azure within a belt sable.] The combination of a charge within a belt or strap is listed in the Glossary of Terms under "Restricted Charges" in accordance with the following precedent:

[Returning Or, a gurges purpure within a belt sable] Armory using a charge within a belt strap is restricted as such motifs were used as a standard form of badge display in Scottish armory. [Dec 2000, Ret-Meridies, Pol MacNeill]

RfS XI.1 states: "Armory that contains elements reserved to or required of certain ranks, positions, or territorial entities, inside or outside the Society, is considered presumptuous." This is such a use, and must therefore be returned for violation of that rule. [Malcolm McGregor the Bold, LoAR 09/2004, Atenveldt-R]
