    Hi CoA community,

    I need your help, please. I know I have to change the design of my coat of arms because it has not allowed crowns in it. I know I could just ask to change the crowns to the allowed once, but I don't like them. So I would like to switch to a new design with only the chaos star and the anhk. I thought of a divided sable, not sure which way(horizontal, vertical or diagonally). I should not be a line as a border because life and chaos don't have a clear border it is washed. regarding the colors I would like to stay with the used one but not sure.

    Please let me hear your suggestions, thanks.

    Blazon:
    Per bend rayonny vert and gules, an ankh Or and a chaos star argent.

    This can almost be done in Grant's Emblazon Generator, save for the complex line of division.

    The line of division would look like this:

    It's in the top row... it is brown and has an eye in the middle... Just set all the tinctures to Argent to get the charge above.

    Sure Riya!

    You'll be looking at this blazon:

    Party per bend sinister nebuly vert and gules, in chief an ankh Or, in base a chaos star Or

    I don't have the tools where I am right now to create a mockup. Someone might get to it before I do, but if no one else does, I'll post it this evening. :)

    Thanks for the fast help. I have another little request. Is it allowed to use runic letters on the crest? I want to make a crest for our organisation of 4B, that's why I would like to use the runic B on the crest.

    That's ok! You're allowed to use runic letters, provided you only use one or two and they're large enough to actually tell what the letter is from a distance. Where would you want to put the B?

    Do you mean instead of the ankh and chaos star? If you want to keep the ankh and chaos star, four Bs arranged like that might be too small, don't you think?

    No it would an extra CoA for the organisation. But I have to discuss the idea first with others. I only want to ask if it would be possible.

    If the 4 runic letters were the same and arranged like that, basically it is a custom symbol. IF that were the only charge on the arms it might work.
