Heraldic dictionary – External elements

For those of us that deal with heraldry in more than one language, it sometimes becomes a problem to figure out the proper heraldic terms in each language. Many times, I resort to using the English language terms when speaking of heraldry in another language because I forget or just don’t know the correct term.

In this new series of posts, I’ll try to present a table listing the heraldic terms in the languages that I typically look at. An interlanguage heraldic dictionary of sorts.

The first post in the series will focus on the external elements of a Coat of Arms
