earlier. However, I would think that a variation of the Illinois flag
would be a bit over-inclusive. Also, at least the Chicago flag is a
fairly basic design.
I guess a primary consideration before getting to any "nuts and
bolts" issues should be whether the Ayreton badge will be used later
as a Baronial emblem, or is it just going to be an Ayreton badge. If
it is not going to be used for a Baronial badge, then it does free up
certain design ideas that wouldn't, or shouldn't, be considered
However, it is nice to know that I wasn't the only one thinking about
that design... it doesn't make me feel like it was too far out there
as an idea...

- Sorry, I messed up did not include the reasons for the badges. You are right about the hand under the table and the pizza.The first one celebrates the REAL official animal of the area: the Construction Horse (gold (yellow) horse across a black stripe extending into the distance). Yeah, I know, perspective is right out in heraldry.Oh, a question to all of the fine heralds out there. How is wind depicted in heraldry?-*Angus*-
