Unto the Heralds of the Noble Kingdom of Calontir,
It is my honor to step in to the office of Gold Falcon that has been so ably and diligently served by so many talented people in our Kingdom's history. My goal is largely the same as Konstantia's was: To keep the light of heraldry going in the heart of the Kingdom, and to make sure our College continues the tradition of collegiality and client advocacy that has defined it. The goal of heralds at every level should be to educate and inspire, and if anyone is doing particularly well or is falling short please contact me at GoldFalcon@calontir.org.
I want to see all of your heraldic enterprises. Banners, displays, ceremonies; share them with me, share them with your fellow Heralds, and share them with the Kingdom. I've challenged everyone to do something heraldic at one event per month--let's make sure everyone sees the beauty and pageantry of our Kingdom.
In Service to the Crown, the Kingdom, and the Dream,
Gold Falcon Herald

Calontir Gold Falcon Herald
The badge above is based on the official seal of the Gold Falcon Principal Herald office. The heraldic websites of the Kingdom Heralds use it with the express permission of the current Gold Falcon, and each tenure we ask for permission again to use it.
Welcome new heralds!
When becoming a herald, it no doubt can seem daunting, but relax - we’re here to help!
