Officer Badges of the Known World

This article used to be maintained on a personal website, but is now maintained on the West Kingdom Heralds' website.

Last Updated: July 10, 2010


This document has badges for offices donated from various web ministers and others throughout the "Known World" ... All images used with permission. If you have a better or cleaner version of a badge, or a missing badge from this list, please donated to the Golem Herald, but be sure you have permission to donate it!

Note: The armory images used here are with the explicit permission of the artists involved. Please do not assume that you can use them for your own purposes without contacting the artists first.

Note: Registrations of armory in the various Kingdoms of the SCA are hard to keep track of, if you know of changes or updates, or new registrations not listed here, please drop me a note, and I'll update the site as soon as I can ... thanks. -- Hirsch

Permission to use images? I cannot give permission, but if you contact me, I may be able to get you in contact with those who created the images ... Unfortunately, I do not have contact information for all of the artists (EMail addresses change, etc.).
