1: Loch Salann, Barony of - New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1980, via Atenveldt.

Societatem et Aquila Coronatus

Per bend argent and sable, an eagle migrant counterchanged

This order name is based on the pattern Other Adjective + Charge found in the article Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna. One of the four cited examples for this pattern is Geselle[schaft] von den gekrenten Steynbocken 'Society of the crowned ibexes' (1436).

In kingdom Basil Lions Heart suggested that the name be changed to either Societās Aquilae Corōnatae, Societās dē Aquilā Corōnatā, or to a macron-less form of either of these. Golden Pillar defers to Pelican to make any changes.
