3: Kilian MacRaith - New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Kilian Macraith in January of 2005, via Ansteorra.

Quarterly argent and vert, a Celtic cross between in bend two turtles tergiant all counterchanged.

We found that the emblazon of the cross appears to be based on historical artifacts rather than heraldic tracts, and might be registerable with a SFPP as a period artifact where a heraldic equivalent exists. Actuarius found the attached image of a cross from the 10th Century.

It was also noted in commentary by Lions Heart that precedent says the arms of a Celtic cross taper, but does not state that they must taper throughout their entire length.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:
