As the designer of the original arms of the Principality, and later the
Kingdom, of Atlantia, I find this discussion especially interesting.  I
have no objections to most of the changes offered, but I would be sad to
lose the cotises.

I had thought that the original Queen's arms did have a wreathe of roses,
to balance the wreathe of laurel.  Either my memory is faulty or it was
changed at a later time.  Likewise, I do not remember the fields originally
being reversed for male and female.
