East ILoI - 2023-06-13

1: Bridge, Barony of the -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1979, via the East.

Azure, a twin-towered three-arched bridge and a bordure Or

The Barony's previous badge submission, (Fieldless) On a delf azure, a twin-towered three-arched bridge Or, was returned on the East Kingdom Letter of Decision of October 2021 (

Unfortunately, this badge must be returned because long-standing precedent prohibits fieldless badges that use charged delfs. Precedent states: "We do not register fieldless badges which appear to be independent forms of armorial display. Charges such as lozenges, billets, and roundels are all both standard heraldic charges and "shield shapes" for armorial display." [Sǫlveig Þrándardóttir, 4/2012 LoAR, A-Æthelmearc] The list of items that are both charges and "shield shapes" includes delfs. (LoAR 9/93 p.25). Placing the bridge on the delf makes the delf appear to be the field, rather than the primary charge, which is prohibited by the 9/93 Letter of Acceptances and Returns.

This redesign addresses the reason for return.
