  1. Hi!

    I just wanted to stop by to let you know that this wording is obsolete. We no longer call this award "The Sapphire Light", and the registered badge blazon is "Fieldless, a stepcut gemstone fesswise azure."

    This website is pretty cool, and I definitely want people to know the correct information. This text has popped up on a couple of scrolls recently, and I decided to track it down to figure out why.


    1. Estelle, thank you for the information. I have made a note in the post that the wording is no longer used.
