When Bishop Theophilus was elected monarch of the Far Isles (then a principality), he was also elevated to the rank of archbishop.
Consequently, arms had to be approved for the Archdiocese of the Far Isles.
The arms of the Far Isles are as follows:
Gules an oak branch slipped and fruited argent enbowed palewise and an apple branch slipped and fruited or counter enbowed palewise.
I always looked on differencing as a challenge, as the arms must both look like the original and be significantly different.
I differenced these arms for the archdiocese by charging a gold mitre between the two branches and adding white border argent with ten red crosses.
The blazon becomes:
Gules a mitre or between an oak branch slipped and fruited argent enbowed palewise and an apple branch slipped and fruited of the second counter enbowed palewise within a border of the second with ten crosses pate of the first.
Which looked like this
