Fiery coats of arms

Postby Arthur Radburn » 03 Sep 2016, 18:23

Some fiery coats of arms to warm up the forum.

The Canadian Heraldry Authority recently posted the arms of Walter Harding, a retired fire officer, on their facebook page :

Image
The arms were granted in 2000. The blazon (or should that be "blaze-on"?) is : Per bend rayonné Gules goutté d'eau and Or.

Three South African coats of arms featuring flames :

Image
The SA Fire Services Institute, registered in 1983 : Per fess enarched Azure and Gules, a fess enarched rayonné to base between in chief a fire-dragon Argent and in base a fountain.

Image
The Fire Brigade Board, registered in 1989 : Azure, two fireman's axes in saltire surmounted by a fireman's helmet Or; on a chief enarched Gules, flames issuant Or.

Image
The Mines Rescue Service, registered in 2002 : Per chevron Or and Sable, a fillet chevron of the first, in chief flames of fire Gules and in base a latticed mineshaft Argent. This is not the Bureau's artwork, of course, and it omits the fillet chevron. It's possible that this was the original artwork and the Bureau added the fillet chevron to the blazon to separate the red and black.

Who has any other fiery coats of arms to add to this thread?

My emblazonment. The blazon is "Or a lion rampant Sable armed and langued Gules between in dexter and sinister chief two ancient pistols, butts downward and outward and flintlocks showing, in base a mound of ironstone enflamed all proper." Not sure whether it's an English or Scottish grant. He was, among other things, master of the Worshipful Company of Gun Makers.

That is certainly a distinctive coat of arms, Joseph. Thanks for posting it.
