The College of Arms

There are two aspects to the College of Arms. One aspect is to educate and inspire courtesy, use of proper forms of address, heralding and court etiquette. The other is that of heraldic display within the Adrian Empire.

Heraldry draws upon the artistic creativity and pageantry of the empire. Flags, banners, personal devices and badges (collectively known as "arms") follow the ancient rules of heraldry to identify individuals and estates throughout the Empire. To ensure that no two individuals or estates are using the same emblazon, the College of Arms exists to register these designs, as a form of copyright.



These are the forms authorized by the ISoA for use within Adria.


The College of Arms keeps records of all published Lists of Registration (LoRR's) as well as any official or judicial rulings made which concern the heraldry and arms of the Empire.

Letters of Registration and Return (LoRR)

A LoRR is an official document containing rulings made which concern the heraldry of the Empire. All rulings should be made within 90 days of a presentation being submitted to the Imperial Sovereign of Arms (ISOA). Within this time the proposal for a grant of arms will be checked against the armorial/ordinary for conflict, violations of the guidelines, complexity and blazonry.
