I do think the Ionelus family has some kind of sigil, since their personal funds are most likely seperate.

Just wanted to point out the Vallaki garda aren't typically trained professional soldiers for hire, but more like militia.
So they don't wear any colours, that is just the colour of the undyed leather, but brown is as good a guess as any.
Brown usually doesn't work too well for banners though, too muddy. But grey, white and blue would make sense.

Grey and white for sure, don't know how the blue would fit in though, no other indication but the existing banners, I guess

Also a historical note - Ionelus just lives in the citadel. It was built by the Tergs. as was Castle Ravenloft.


What do you think of this? Simple but effective (I think)

    - Citadel
    - Halberd
    - Raven

Two variations, one with the Raven holding the Halberd and one with it below.
 


Although I like Forsaken_Warrior's as well

Looks good, though IMO I think only the Von Zarovich should have the raven as their central symbol, the others should just have it as minor  decorations

I would still ditch the brown part, it just isn't a great colour to use for a sigil.

Other than that it looks good, possibly a bit too fancy with the jeweled halberd.
I agree with the reply above though, I wouldn't give the Ionelus family a raven.
(The tower and halberd idea work, possibly an entirely different animal like an ox.)

The brown on those banners looks good, imho.

It's more of a mottled gold than brown, which may represent the Ionelus even better. Considering they're trying to stake their own claim in Barovia, a bit of egotism would make sense.

Raising a topic from the dead but here are a few canon crests:

The Von Zarovich family's crest is a large black raven (as per Vampire of the Mists); there's a brief depiction of the coat of arms in Gaz I as well. (it's drastically different in Curse of Strahd but still a raven)
The Drakov family's crest is a hawk (Gaz III)
The Von Aubrecker family's crest is a black eagle (Adam's Wrath)
The ApBlanc's family crest is a mailed fist gripping a white feather
The Weathermay's family crest is a pair of hounds on either side of an open book, which has the family motto inscribed on it; Motto: "None would survive but for the efforts of those whom history has forgotten. (all Mordent families's crests, including the Weathermay's, are depicted in Gaz III)

Borca has a canon insignia, page 28 of Gazeteer 4.
"The Borcan insignia depicts a black and silver serpent on a burgundy field, its coils severed into nine parts and flanked by nine silver stars. Officially, it symbolizes the nine original city-states of Borjia, though cynics muse that it now aptly represents the foundations of Borcan culture: Wine, wealth, and trechary."
