Since then I try to adapt this basic Black Falcon to my respective rank (Archer, Steward, Man-at-arms, etc.). Right now my Falcon is a merchant, and it's the first time he's not wearing his coat of arms.

Okay, I'm going to be really bad here, but I've held my Tolkienologist in for too long now...
Although your avatar looks really good (and I'm not just saying that), it's slightly inaccurate. Although it doesn't actually say it in the Silmarillion, Tolkien intended Maedhros to have red hair. In one of his late texts, in which he explained the meaning of the names of the Noldorin princes, he explains Maedhros (the Sindarin name used through the Silmarillion) as being a mixture of two of his Quenya names from back in Valinor: Maitimo (his mother-name) and Russandol- which was a "nickname" given by his brothers, which means "Coppertop", since he had red hair.
Anyway, it's not important, and your avatar does look great, but I couldn't restrain myself after such a long fast.
As to my own avatar, which I've had since I figured out how to make it, WAY back when I was less than a one-month newbie, it is the coat of arms of the King in my made-up, non-LEGO world, and is a representation of how it would appear in a LEGO form.
It actually appears in the arms above the Castle gate, when Henry visited my LEGO, back in the spring. Here is the best example.
