But that will look lop-sided to those of us who have never seen anyone die.

Weasels, in heraldry, are probably best represented by the fur ermine, since that what weasels are in the winter. Gules, ermined Or?


No, no!  I disagree—weasels in heraldry are best represented by weasels.

Besides, the cant requires a blazon that can be rendered using the word "weaselly."  Belettée was just an obscure, typically heraldese way of blazoning.  And as Marcus points out, the weasels must have red fur:  "Or weaselly Gules."

It’s very significant, and more personal to Harry than his membership in Griffyndor.

 


I’ve never read the books, and have only seen the movies.  I don’t recall the deer itself, but will take your word for it.

 

I think the arms are very handsome.

In the time traveling movie with the hippogryph, where Harry mistakes himself for his father, they show Harry (future Harry who goes back in time, who is mistaken for his father) as a sort of stag-like apparition.

Well, I was trying to point out the reason without spoiling the books for those who haven’t read them, but never mind.

Miss Granger’s parents were/are dentists (held in some disdain by the wizarding community), so perhaps something along the lines of "Gules a pair of dental picks in saltire Or, and for a crest, on a torse of the colours an otter and a weasel respectant proper supporting an open Bestiary argent limned gules".
