The Mad Alchemist's Heraldry

Heraldry, the study of coats of arms, crest, &c. is one of my favourite hobbies. Being a nationalist, I have posted on this site as much Canadian heraldry as I could find (except for personal heraldry, of which there is way too much to fit on my webspace. I'd be too tempted to abate the arms of certain hated politicians anyway).

The dragon seen in the background is a detail from a woodcut done by my great-grandpa many years ago. If I ever become rich enough to register my own coat of arms, this drake will be the crest.
