Afirmugaly (Heraldry)

Poku Afirmu (Clan Crest)

This page contains information regarding Afirmugaly (ăfērmūgălī) crest law or Heraldry as it applies to the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. Clan heraldry consists of a crest or emblem and colors.

It is the responsibility of the Kyn Lumu'ai Jael (Lore Keepers Sect) to record, and maintain an accurate history of every symbol. They also work with a new Ruoka (House) or Punla (Family) to create a new symbol for them. Depending on the circumstances the new group will often take elements from the group they are leaving, to establish a relationship.

Afirmu (Crest)

Every Ruoka (House), be it a Major or Minor, has a unique crest or emblem for the purpose of this document they will be referred to as symbol. Just as every Punla (Family) does as well. It is also not uncommon for a Punla (Family) to commission a symbol for their vessels. Symbolism is very important as it connects the members with the legacy of the owning group. They give a sense of identity that other members of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo can immediately recognize.

Components

A Poku Saeruo Degonjo symbol consists not only of the devices (components) of the symbol, but the background color and in some cases a colored trim.

Usage

Crests and Emblems are worn as adornments of Vonaniom (Clothing). They are often incorporated into personal weapons. They can also be displayed as decorations on pennants, banners and on vehicles.

Colors

Another aspect of Heraldry in the clan is color or more often colors. Very few families have a true family color. Those that do are some of the oldest surviving in the clan. New families color(s) are typically a thread pattern of colors. When members choose to start a new family, they often work elements of both parental family colors into a new one.
