I was going to ask about that. If I understand the language of heraldese
correctly (I'm not a herlad, nor do I play one on TV), the field is or (gold),
the rose is red (as opposed to proper with gold seeds and green leaves), and
the suns are also gold at the top of the shield (in chief). This would make 
three gold suns on a gold field above a red rose. (how'm I doing Herveus).

And Eogan, what's an Og?
