Accepts from Meridies
Margareta Gijsberts. Name and device. Vert, on a chief wavy argent two bees
Hurrah, it's done! - As Melbrigda, our Herald, and 'name representative' (aka Lambent Herald) for the Kingdom to the College of Heralds, said:
"Start slapping bees on stuff."
Heh. A note to the
picky precise - bees have two sets of wings. This is actually part of a conversation I had with some heralds at RUM last year who were concerned that perhaps bees sable might not be distinguishable as bees, and not flies, or dragonflies, or some other insect. We brainstormed and decided that the silhouette of a bee was distinct enough, because of the short fat body and the double set of wings, and apparently the College agreed. Mel says:
Congratulations! Made it through without a single commentary, artist's note or concern! Woot!
Of course there was no standardized spelling in the 15thc, so now I get to purposefully misspell Margaret anyway I feel like it. Though this will be the spelling on my awards, etc, because this is the digital age, and Paper Stuff Must Be Consistent.
