Coat of Arms[edit]

You might want to get a more experience Blazoner to check this, but looking at the image on the town's website (http://www.ansfelden.at/system/web/default.aspx), I think that the Blazon (heraldic description of the coat of arms) would go something like this - "(Party) per bend sinister Vert and Gules, a bendlet sinister wavy Argent between, in chief six organ-pipes Argent, and in base a cog Argent". It may be that the organ-pipes may have to be blazoned to describe the rise from left to right, or it may be that that is a given due to the bendlet sinister - not sure on that one; nor am I sure that "organ-pipes" and "cog" are acceptable in Blazonry JustJimWillDo (talk) 05:11, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

eta: I left a request for someone at the Blazon page to have a look at this for me JustJimWillDo (talk) 07:20, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

That's close to how I would blazon that. I'd say: "(Party) per bend sinister Vert and Gules, a bendlet sinister wavy between, in chief six organ-pipes conjoined Argent, and in base a cog wheel Gules fimbriated Argent". The pipes are joined to each other, not scattered about in the upper portion of the field. The first use of Argent is not necessary (or usually desirable), because then it will be repeated when describing the pipes. Finally, the cog wheel is actually red, but outlined in white.
The only thing that the blazon doesn't quite capture is that the division of the field does not start from the sinister-chief corner, which it normally should do. This detail might not be blazonable. --EncycloPetey (talk) 08:47, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that very prompt advice. JustJimWillDo (talk) 10:52, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Rather than a blazon, it would be better to import the image itself from de:Ansfelden. (I don't know how to do that.) —Tamfang (talk) 18:08, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
It would be better, but I don't know how to go about it either. Here's what I did find though [1] -- JustJimWillDo (talk) 12:18, 27 January 2009 (UTC)


Citation for "representing" in Coat of Arms[edit]

Since the CoA was only granted in 1985 it is very likely that the Authority that granted them is still available. This needs to be cited if any part of a CoA is to be said to "represent" anything. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JustJimWillDo (talkcontribs) 11:22, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Coat of arms picture[edit]

Is there any good reason that de.wikipedia has a picture of the coat of arms but en. doesn't? If it's something that doesn't require digital imaging expertise, I'd be happy to do it. James470 (talk) 22:43, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Looking at Meta:Help:Import, I think we may need the help of an admin to import the image file from de:WP to en:WP. I suppose the simple way would be to download the image and then upload it here as a new file, but then you lose the history. WP:EAR may be the best place to find the help needed for the import. Wilhelm_meis (talk) 06:20, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I can post a request to WP:EAR, and I will. Thanks. James470 (talk) 00:48, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for trying, James, and I'm sorry my advice did not yield better results. I went ahead and put in a request at the WP help desk. We'll see if we get some help there. I'm as eager to learn more about this process as you. Wilhelm_meis (talk) 06:14, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Done, thanks to User:Jezhotwells. Wilhelm_meis (talk) 01:06, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much to all of you. James470 (talk) 02:02, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
