3: Gasparre di Lucca -New Device

Consulting herald Gasparre di Lucca


4: Loch Salann, Barony of -Resub Badge

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

Per bend argent and sable, in bend three eagles migrant counterchanged

The original iteration of this badge submission (image 1) was returned by Laurel on the Feb 2019 LoAR with the following comments:

This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Gustavos von Bergen, Per bend argent and sable, a raven displayed counterchanged. There is no difference between displayed and migrant, especially since neither bird is in their period posture.

It was suggested in commentary that adding a coronet to the badge might help clear conflict. While this is true, it would also require everyone who displays the badge to be entitled to display a coronet, something that is unlikely for a baronial Order. The submitter should be aware of this when weighing options for resubmission.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a migrant bird.
