Canton of Graywinds

Founded: 09/07/1977
Modern Location: Central Los Angeles, California

Defunct canton of Angels


In Existence 9/1977 - 3/1985

Meaning: Named for the color of the smoggy Los Angeles air. The canton's original name was "Derryabarre", but this name did not meet the approval of the heralds.

The idea of forming a Canton in the central area of Los Angeles County was inspired by an attempt to extend the Canton of the Canyons as far west as the Wilshire District of the city of Los Angeles. The original concept was that the areas that were a local call from the SCA population center in the Wilshire District would be part of the canton. This would be Central LA, Glendale, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Culver City. Briefly, it effectively extended to the Santa Monica beaches. When Lyondemere split off from Angeles, Graywinds returned to roughly its originally intended boundaries. During its heyday, it put on a kingdom event about once a reign.

Blazon: Gules, in fess three lightning flashes palewise Or, and upon a chief invected argent, a laurel wreath vert. Branch arms released in 1993

The canton's founders included:
