A new armorial standard from South Africa.

The South African armorial bearings, badge and standard of Mr. Bob Juchter van Bergen Quast have recently been publicised on Facebook and I found it interesting to see how the Bureau have displayed the badge in the standard and also taken charges from the arms. I would be interested to see the blazon for the badge and for the standard to see how what appears to be the oval field of the badge is taken forward to become the first section of the standard. It is also an innovative (and very pleasing) use of the leopards' heads in the standard. It is good to see such design interpretations from The Bureau of Heraldry of South Africa; this may be breaking new ground.











Mr. Juchter van Bergen Quast had his arms, badge and standard registered with the Bureau of Heraldry in 2003. His arms were issued under certificate number 3370, while his badge and standard were received under certificate numbers 3371 and 3372, respectively.
