Incorrect deletion: File:Giedroyc Arms in England.jpgEdit

At 11.00 on 9 March, you deleted "File:Giedroyc Arms in England.jpg". This is your explanation: ‎ "( The PD rationale is faulty since the arms were granted in 1984 so the artist can't be dead for 70 years.)" This makes no sense. No one has ever claimed the artist has been dead for 70 years. This version of the Giedroyc arms was recorded by the College of Arms in England in around 2000. Please undelete.

Giedroyc Arms in EnglandEdit

You deleted the image Giedroyc Arms in England.jpg for reasons I don't understand. The arms were granted by the English College of Arms to my father-in-law Michał Giedroyć in 1999, based on his family's Polish arms. (I don't know where you got the information that they were granted in 1984: that is incorrect.) The original artwork was done by the College of Arms. My father-in-law, by definition, has the right to display them. At his request, I made the file with the image of the arms in 2010. Please could you undelete? Thank you. User talk:Philipparham
