Either the Grateful Dead have a war Ensign or the Nideröst Spanish Regiment discovered LSD well before Herr Leary.

Having become the preeminent taste-makers and design mavens among the Vex Set, we Hagz thought we’d expand our brand. As a public service, we’ve begun a blog about the DO’s and DONT’s of Heraldic Design.

DISAPPOINTING, I SAY.
