Ianthe and everyone,
To be one of the first, I would just like to point out that the
arms of The Merry Rose (unofficial because Laurel said it would
only be registered over her dead body :-) contain canting.
These arms were devised by none other than our very own Leifr.
(take a bow, Leifr :-)
Anyway, the blazon (blazoned by our very own Evan) is:
(fieldless) On the seeds of a rose barbed and seeded proper, in fess two
roundels in pale, a billet fesswise and an increscent, all sable.
which means of course a rose with a smiley :-) on it. A graphic
of this device can be found at the Merry Rose web page, which is
at the bottom of every post <http://sca.wayfarer.org/merryrose/>.
Alright, then, next... :-)
