In herald-speak, the guild shield (or device) is as follows: Sable, in bend two annulets conjoined argent within a bordure embattled Or.
A black field, upon which rest two conjoined silver rings from upper left to lower right, surrounded by a crenellated gold border.
But what does it mean?
Sable (black). The color of obsidian. Obsidian Order derived it’s name from the highest tier stone in Horizons during beta, obsidian. Heraldically speaking, black is a color for constancy. It is also a strong color, denoting the strength that lies just beneath the surface of our guild.
Two conjoined silver rings. These are the two circles of the guild: adventurers and crafters. They are conjoined because the crafters rely on the adventurers for defense and the adventurers rely on the crafters for weapons and armor. There is a gap in the conjunction, where both adventurers and crafters are linked. Rings are also symbolic of fidelity. The rings are laying in diagonal (in bend). A diagonal positioning signifies protection and defense. The color silver denotes peace and sincerity.
A gold embattled border. Embattlement/crenellation is a symbol of community, fortitude, and strength. Using this as a border as an encompassing factor demonstrates our strength together being far greater than that of a single individual. It demonstrates our strong ties and bonds with one another. Gold is the color of generosity.
