On behalf of the dean, the Oblivious Auditing Fellow is assigned to handle this request.  If in need of any assistance, I'd advise asking the Rouge Elephant Herald, @Dr. Txec Róibeard dal Nordselvă, Esq., O.SPM, SMM , for advice.

After much deliberation and conversation with the armiger (myself) and with the assistance of the Rouge Elephant Herald, I present the Arms of Carlüs Vilaçafat for approval.

Blazon:  Per fess trefly counter-trefly, argent and vert. In chief two roses proper and in base a cinquefoil or.

I like it, generally.  Lot of argent and vert around here these days, but it's pretty.  I'm not familiar with this line of division, though.  It helps create an interesting garden sort of effect, since the trefoil is basically a floral element and you have the roses and a cinqefoil on there, too, but I am dubious -- seems likely to be a very modern innovation.

A modern innovation perhaps, in the same vein as the more traditional "fleury counter-fleury"
I hear you Baron, I will go back to the drawing board, adjust the tinctures and rein it in a little  ;)

Tinctures seem completely fine to me!  I was just joking since I have argent and vert :)

There's a lot of different traditional lines -- if you're looking for something floral-feeling, you could engrail it, for example, or use rayonny (which is kind of like grass).  Or if you want something complex specifically, dovetailing looks cool.

I was actually considering a potent division before I found the trefly counter-trefly, so I think I will go back to that one.

OK good! I wasn't sure because I know there are a couple argent/vert arms in the armory  :)

Potent division makes sense to me!  Fun fact: that term refers to an English walking-stick.  I think when describing a division you also use the French (potenté), as opposed to a sort of semy potent.

Any symbolism with all of this, or you just like the design?

Well I love the look of the traditional heraldic roses, so I wanted that to be a main feature. The cinquefoil represents my family, because there are 5 of us. I kind of see it as the roses are my wife and I, watching over our family.  In the original design I didn't even see the garden theme, but I am an avid gardener, so that makes sense as well.

Very attractive arms. It's too bad this blazon just missed the Tafsut Imazighen Honours day. Perhaps the king can be moved to grant the arms on Juneau Day Honours (28 May) but it may also have to wait until St. Aaron's Day Honours on June 22.

Oh I know, I just missed it! But that's alright, I can wait for a little bit.

Can I also register a badge? Do I have to wait for the arms to be granted before I can do that?

The newly established guidelines for badges do not require any act of His Majesty, so I think you can register one whenever you want.

OK great! In that case I would like to also register the badge below:
