About the Shield

Sable, a lion rampant, tricoloured* per pale Vert, Argent and Orange,
armed Or and langued Gules


* or "party of three"
I created this shield for the web site, to generally represent the Irish Palatine families. It combines a banner of the Palatinate of the Rhein circa 1700 (Sable a lion rampant Or) with the Irish tricolour (A field tierced per pale Vert, Argent and Orange). It also obviously violates the heraldic tincture rules in the absence of a "bordure" or a counter-changed field. If you know of a legitimate family coat of arms used by any branch of the Teskey or Teske families (or other families descended from a Teskey) I'd love to start a collection of them here on the web site!
