Vinland - Coat of Arms

Recommended Posts

Your Highness,

I would like Vinland to be a traditional Viking Jarldom. It is situated in the north and therefore it is very well adapted to be a place where Vikings live in their traditional ways.

"The cluster of grapes symbolises to Vinland's viniculture where this Jarldom is renowned for since ancient times.": The climate in the Viking nations, this far to the north, doesn't allow viniculture. This is a bit of a problem.

In heraldry the grapes not necessarily refer to viniculture. I refer to this website . Grapes also are a symbol of happiness, bliss and peace. Fruits of all kinds was  considered Proof of God's goodness. Can that be changed?

Your servant,

Polten of Yperpen
