Heraldry in the Kingdom of Ikonia is granted to common, noble, and royal personnel, as well as provinces, dominions, cities, towns, and marches. The Chief Officer and King of Arms for heraldry are the King. The national arms of Ikonia and the first royal arms of the House of Koehler were made prior to the creation of the corporation, but are patented. All Ikonian arms are now processed through His Majesty's Heraldic Authority and sometimes, the Society of Arms.

Noble families and families of members of the Order of the Diaconus are also granted arms and the right to inherit them.

Augmentation

Augmentations in Ikonian heraldry include Explications and Abatements. Both of which may be granted to an individual, but not inherited.

Explications

In Ikonia, an Augmentation of Explication, or simply an Explication of the arms, may be displayed in any fashion the Herald designs.

The explications per His Majesty's ruling:

  • the attitude of Returned

The attitude of Returned is used rarely as a way to describe a charge that is reversed and inverted (as given to someone and flipped over, therefore returning it back)

Abatement

Abatement is the opposite of an Explication where the recipient has been convicted of misconduct. Abatements can only be issued by the monarch and granted by His Majesty's Heraldic Authority. All abatements are those which follow the Baustralian and Gradonian heraldry types, with extra options.
