Re: [Ayreton] Re: Ayreton Badge Contest
- Ok, I was in the area the time this happened, but wasn't really "in the loop", but here's MY understanding of it.
It's indeed a takeoff on the Windy City...Ayre Town.....
Many did not like it, but no one came up with anything that was universally liked better....getting a "name" in this area of the world...and by that I don't just mean Chicagoland, but Illinois, is not an easy thing. Other examples.....
Midlands....it kinda made sense back in the day when Calontir and Northshield were still part of the Middle Kingdom, as we were literally in the middle of the kingdom.....and I remember all sorts of other names getting bandied about, but once again, no agreement.
Bob the Midlands Dragon.....He started as Bob, and by the time any thought to officially try to rename him, it was too late...
Hope that helps...
- 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*-
