Since I don't have one either, I can't check that.

Can you please blazon them, or if you're not 100% up on the blazons
for these, describe them precisely in plain English?  And where are
they used?

I have some probable notions, but I'd like a lot more certainty about
the designs involved before I load the bombard.  I would also like to
know the purpose and the client.  For example, until you mentioned the
black-and-white use was in the Black Star, I had neglected the fact
that sometimes there are monochrome media.
