Furyondy Coat of Arms?

Does anyone know the heraldry of the Furyondy Coat of Arms?

The three crowns?
Crecent moon?

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.

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

Wow! Thanks for the translation. Do you know what it represents?

Do I know what what represents?

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.

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.
