Culture (13th-15th century Novgorod) most important.

Nika: Nika is a saint's name dated to the third century. From Wickenden: Nika (f) -- "conquest." Nika, martyr. 3rd Century. [Buk 142] http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/n.html

3: Nicolaa de Bracton of Leicester -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1994, via the Middle.

(Fieldless) A mullet of eight points per fess argent and gules distilling a goutte de sang.


4: Shimazu Kojirou Nobuhisa -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2017, via Ealdormere.

(Fieldless) A centipede tergiant ondoyant palewise Or.

The defining instance of a centipede in the Society was registered on the October 2018 LoAR.

Gustav Siggesson Leijonhofwud. Badge. (Fieldless) Within a centipede tergiant in annulo Or a cherry blossom gules.

This is the defining instance of a centipede in SCA heraldry. The centipede was known to period Europeans, and commenters provided depictions of centipedes from Joris Hoefnagel, dated at least to the 1560s, as well as examples from Japanese Mon. Unlike the caterpillar, registered last month, the centipede's legs issue from either side of its body; it is therefore most identifiable as tergiant.

Correction to Badge (2019-Mar-18 18:03:03): The defining instance was registered on the November 2018 LOAR.


As always, kindest thanks to all those who take the time to comment. Please join us for our March Submissions meeting on March 18th.
