The following is cut and paste from a whole bunch of the posts on badges:

Well, I think most of us are ignorant to any biker symbols. I know I
wouldnt let this stop me from using a triskelion of human legs. I am
surprised that people havn't said, 'I don't want a symbol that could be
associated with Trimaris.' (Well, one has, but he dosn't even live in
Kingdom.) Look at http://www.trimaris.org/, thier principle herald is even
called Triskele Principal Herald. I am thinking maybe we shouldn't use
three legs, but just one leg instead.
>But can the foot be in pointe? Better than a flex foot. (we were always
>badgered for flex feet)
I think we could specify this - maybe? But I am certain that human
apendages were almost always drawn with joints bent - demonstrating the
movement of the leg, or arm. I read that this is the defunct position of
the leg (for instance) but that might mean that we could specify otherwise.
(I actually dont know if you were joking - or serious about this.)
>Is a slipper a heraldic charge?
Can someone explain to me why people would look at a peacock feather and
think 'oh - its the dance guild'?
>If someone could resend me the ideas I didn't get,
>I'll get to it this weekend.
Wow, Katriana - that was really nice to do. Could you do a few with the
same basic blazon, but the charges being a foot, a shoe, a slipper, and a
leg? So we can see what those look like to?
