The three crowns?
Wikipedia says. "Party per bend gules and azure, dexter three crowns in bend or, sinister a decrescent argent"
But I have no idea what that means.
|#2samwiseJun 05, 2007 23:34:29||Party per = the background is two colors|
bend = divided diagonally along a line from the upper right to the lower left (from the perspective the person carrying the shield, as are the other directions noted below)
gules = the right side is red
and azure = the left side is blue
dexter = on the right side (in the red area)
three crowns = are three crowns
in bend = in a diagonal line from the upper right to the lower left
or = that are gold
sinister = on the left side (in the blue area)
a decrescent = is a crescent moon with the tips pointing down
argent = that is silver

Those funny words in general?
That is the most common form of herald-speak, a technical jargon involving a bit of Latin that is used to describe coats of arms and such.
Those funny words specifically?
As the wikipedia entry stated, that is the coat of arms of Furyondy.
|#5zombiegleemaxJun 06, 2007 13:26:12||You can see the arms here:|
If by what it means you mean the symbolism of the arms, aka, what is Furyondy saying about itself, I have no idea nor do I know if any was intended.
If I had to guess, I would say the crowns is saying something about the legitimacy of the government but that is just a WAG.
