Northern Ireland[edit]

I have added the version of the arms for use in Scotland and renamed the Northern Ireland Version.

These arms were granted to the Government of Northern Ireland, and so fell into disuse when Direct Rule was applied in the 1970s. I have used the term "obsolete" as this term is also used in wikipedia for the Order of St Patrick, newver abolished but never used. In theory the present devolved assembly and government could use the arms, a Royal Licence perhaps to confirm the right of succession (OK it is a theory and ignores the present party political situation).

The Public record office holds a series of correspondence between the Home Office and the King of Arms re a new badge for Northern Ireland around 1970. Deemed politically inexpedient to grant the Province a Royal Badge, Garter then insisted that the badge, like the arms, was for the Government of Northern Ireland. A subtle but crucial difference in the eyes of the Heralds, but ignored by the politicians. No new badge was forthcoming. garryq 10:11, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Guernsey[edit]

User 80.229.238.161 made the following comment in the main article. I have reverted the article and moved the comment here.

"Guernsey is wrong; it is differenced from the arms of Jersey (and England) by the addition of a sprig. See, for example <www.ngw.nl/int/cha/guernsey.htm>."

I leave someone else to update the image if appropriate. TrevorD 18:57, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
