SCA ~ Heraldry

Sicilian medieval royal heraldry.Medieval coats of arms were often "canted" for surnames, representing them graphically as a kind of rebus. The Grifeo family displayed a griffon, the Leone a lion, the Chiaramonte (light mountain) white mountains, Oliveri an olive tree. Bearing simple geometric designs such as stripes (known as ordinaries), symbols such as stars or animals (called charges) or canting references to surnames, the oldest coats of arms are some of the simplest and most aesthetic.

Bestiary: Heraldic Monsters & Medieval Critters compiled by Modar These are creatures referred to in various bestiary and/or heraldry texts. For some of the creatures, their use in period heraldry cannot be found. A * denotes that the charge has been used at some point in SCA heraldry. Several of depictions cannot be used for SCA registration, but are here for description reference.
