I know several people have already answered one, but let me offer one
concrete example.  Surely everyone in Atlantia is familiar with the
Confederate battle flag?

       Gules, on a saltire azure fimbriated thirteen mullets argent

Slainte -

Alasdair mac Iain of Elderslie       Argent, a chevron cotised azure
Dun an Leomhainn Bhig                surmounted by a sword and in chief
Canton of Dragon's Aerie             two mullets sable
