4: Muirghen MacQuharrie -Resub Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, a galleon proper sailed vert, on a chief azure three roses argent.

Originally submitted on the Ealdormere LoI dated 2018-04-24, the original device was returned on the July 2018 LoAR:

"This device is returned for presumption through display of the flag of Libya, Vert. In past precedents, Libya's iconic single-tinctured flag has been given less protection than the other single-tinctured design we protect, the arms of Brittany, Ermine. Libya's protections are dismissed when they appear as part of a potential quartering, where Brittany is protected. And uncharged sails of a single tincture have long been held not to be a display of armory in and of themselves, with Libya specifically cited in the January 2014 registration of Morgan Grey Beard's device, Argent, a sail vert fastened to its mast and hanging from its yardarm sable.

However, banners and pennons are still considered means of heraldic display. And given that the banners hanging above the sails are rectangular and wider than they are tall, they appear to be modernly shaped flags. In other words, the galleon is literally flying the flag of Libya. If any protection for this design is to be afforded at all, it must surely be in the form in which it was actually used, as a modern national flag.

Upon resubmission, the submitter may omit the banners entirely, or else change their tincture to something other than vert or ermine, to clear the issue of presumption."

This design has taken the advice of the letter and omitted the flags. This should clear any such presumption with Libya.

5: Rubeus le Blont -New Name & New Device

Sable, a fleur-de-lys, on a chief an argent open book between two musical notes sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Middle French) most important.
