Re: Merry Rose favors?

While I would hardly oppose such a suggestion, I would like to point out
that currently the "Merry Rose" is only a tavern sign, and as such is not
within the control and authority of the college of Arms. If, however,
you start to put it on favors, you propose to make it a badge. This
presents two difficulties. The badge is probably heraldicly untenable,
that is the college or arms will not pass it. Conversely, in its present
state, it probably conflicts with something, as I did not try to check it
before painting the tavern sign (note I did not say emblazon the badge
Still, its a nice little sign, and we all know what it means. Perhaps
Lord Triton could render an opinion on the matter?
Who wonders if you shouldn't have different fields for lurkers and posters?
