    Regards,
    No, whatever it is, it isn't that. Isn't the blazon on the certificate? (It doesn't seem to have been uploaded to the online SABH database yet. http://www.national.archsrch.gov.za/...63%26DB%3DHERE )

    Hello Joseph,

    I may have made a mistake I believe it was called "a chevron cottised" and was originally omitted from the blazon. Although the arms are "registered" I am waiting for the certificate which may take until December. The Herald in South Africa referred to it as a Chevron Cottised...I mistakenly said two chevrons.

    But a chevron cotised is a chevron flanked by two narrow chevrons with the tincture of the field showing through in between, like this:



    If your chevron is in fact blazoned as cotised, then there must be something to indicate that the space between the chevron and the cotises is gold instead of ermine. It's a very attractive design, but I can't think of a way to blazon this treatment of the chevron, where the space is not the same tincture as the field, without getting horribly convoluted. I'm curious to know what the SABH came up with.

    Hi Joseph,

    I will have to ask them (SABH) and try to clarify and will post back when I have a response.

    Joseph,

    This is the way it should read: a chevron cottised Gules, voided Or.

    Hi Dram, my draft has come through today from the Bureau of Heraldry. I think it looks great :-)

    Quite nice. Simple is best and this is a very identifiable coat because of that. I think you're well on your way. Is the crest a warbler or some type?

    Your full heraldic achievement is great Dram. The bird I thought was a blue throated nightingale but its been suggested that a blue throat isn't a nightingale at all.....however to the best of my scant knowledge they are from the same family. (Swedish Nightingale )
