I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once [redacted]'s armory is registered.

We are aware that this permission to conflict does not match the desired blazon, and heralds have reached out to obtain a new one.

15: Jeanne Robin -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2009, via the East.

Per chevron inverted flory at the point gules and Or.

The original item "Per chevron flory at the point Or and gules." was returned on the June 2015 LOAR for visual conflict with the device of Pendar the Bard: Per chevron ployé Or and azure, a demi-fleur-de-lys issuant from the line of division azure. These are two different ways of blazoning the same motif (save that Pendar has concaved lines, which is an artistic change and does not count for a difference). Since we can't blazon our way out of conflict, this must be returned.

This is a slight redesign.
