Arms of the Barony of Flaming Gryphon
Information
Founded:1979
Modern Location:Southwest Ohio

Flaming Gryphon is a barony located in Southwest Ohio.


Contents

Cantons and Groups

It is comprised of 4 Shires. They are the Marche of Winged Hills, the Shire of Havenhold, the Canton of Hawkes Keye, and the Shire of Norborough.

As of 2017, we have 3 dormant shires: the Marche of the Unicorn (now the Miami University Medieval Club), the Marche of Flaming Sword, and the College of St. Joan.

The original shires were given permission to call themselves Marches because they formed a Barony from groups that had been part of Middle Marches.

Another of the original shires later became the Barony of Fenix.

Livery of Flaming Gryphony


Coat of Arms and Livery of the Barony

Blazon: Ermine, in bend sinister a gryphon stooping Or, enflamed proper, and a laurel wreath palewise vert.

While stooping is no longer considered a true heraldic position, the Arms have been grandfathered in and allowed to stay as registered. According to the first Baron, Syr Lorimer MacAltin of the Garioch, the idea for the design is that the Gryphon is pouncing on the laurel wreath.

All members of the Barony may wear the Livery of the Barony, which is blazoned: Per pale ermine and Or.
