Help Recreate Gygax’s Heraldry!

I’ve been doing some volunteer work with the Gygax Memorial Fund, a worthy cause that’s devoted to building a statue in his honor in Lake Geneva. One of the things I’m hoping to put together is some items for the fund to give to donors that would have the Gygax heraldry on them – famously seen on the shield of the fighter in the DMG cover, and also featured in the logo of Gygax Games and the Memorial Fund.

Could someone with expertise in such things help me create a simple four-color version of just the shield heraldry, in a graphic format that would scale well to sizes from mini-keychain to T-shirt? We might also want to try some out that have a linked GG – Tim Kask told me that he’d used this form of his initials as a kind of logo, although I haven’t found any examples – or each of those initials in either lower diagonal of the shield.

Less immediately useful, but by no means are these contributions to be despised: how would you describe this shield in fancy heraldic speak? What is its lineage? What are all the ways Gary worked it into things he worked on?
