I know this is a ways off if we ever get them but I want to make sure I save one for Burning Heart.

something like that, but within the rules
This would be up to the College to decide, but I personally know of no precedent for a burning heart used in heraldry. I would assume one could blazon it 'a heart engulfed in flames of fire' were one moved to. It would need to be a custom charge.
Really, that's more tattoo art than heraldic art.
Edit: And, I'm quite wrong. Learn something new every day. There is precedent for Flaming Hearts.
This is the one Fireangel came up for us.
Hey Lord Beli, welcome back!
We talked about this a bit today, and the thinking seems to be that a burning heart would be fine. I've submitted a charge for approval. We'll see where it lands. It's a slightly modified version of Fireangel's. We can't use the exact one Fireangel provided because it would require a three-color charge. The tiny green and white orles wouldn't work, either, but otherwise sable with a bordure Or is perfectly fine. When we get a burning heart approved, I'll post a mockup here.
Trenyc, that is Fireangel's device. Any device Lord Beli would like to register would have to have two significant points of difference.
When he said, "This is the one Fireangel came up for us," was he just talking about the charge then?
No I think that is actually going to be Fireangels, at first I thought she was doing that for the guild but now I think that is the one she wants for herself
I have no idea. But I do know that that's Fireangel's device. XD
I have a question about all this guild COAs, Whats preventing a person in the guild making everybody in the guild a shield with their COA on it and just say its our guild COA.?
It depends on how it works, but if it works are we currently think (where the blazon will be an 'ingredient' during crafting - but of course, Don't Lawyer Me, Bro!) then there is nothing at all stopping that and in fact we hope that will be a possibility; I for one have really pushed towards that, as it is how my SCA household (guild, essentially) works.
Hello! My 'device' as NirAntae puts it was created when I didn't know if any of our old guild, The Burning Heart was coming into New Britannia other than me. While Beli and I are both officers in that guild, Daylar is the guild leader, and Daylar hasn't said if that device suits him for the guild. That word (device) makes me laugh. *wink* In any case, if that is fine with Daylar for the guild, it's fine with me.
Beli also asked me why my device isn't listed in the College of Arms' Person's List. I have no idea. I don't know what list means what, and why things are what they are on that site. So, I didn't have an answer for Beli on that subject.
I thought guild coats of arms wasn't scheduled for release one, or is it?
Isaiah - see the original OP "a ways off" ... I don't know when they're doing any of it in game to be seen, yadda, yadda,... I just got pulled into the conversation. haha
Fireangel you need your own personal coat of arms, if you want that one as yours so be it, They can reserve Bunning Heart one for the guild for if and when they do come into the game, and as NirAntae said it will have to have two significant differences from yours.
I try not to draw much attention to this Guild coat of arms thing cause I don't want the college to get over worked, I already feel for them, I don't know how they keep up but they are doing a amazing job.
They are, and I am all for the BH using the device I came up with...though that word is still making me snicker... I am such a goob. I'm just waiting to see what Daylar says. @Beli
I like it! If FireAngel wants to let us use that for the guild, then I say 'Aye'. Awesome device!
Aw, how generous. Hello, Daylar - and thank you!
