Heraldry: tinctures

Post  Chamberlain on Thu Oct 23, 2008 1:33 am

In heraldry, tinctures are the colours used to emblazon a coat of arms.

The names used in English blazon for the colors and metals come mainly from French and include Or (gold), Argent (white), Azure (blue), Gules (red), Sable (black), Vert (green), and Purpure (purple). A number of other colors are occasionally found, typically for special purposes.



Heraldic charges can be displayed in their natural colors. Many natural items such as plants and animals are described as Proper in this case. Proper charges are very frequent as crests and supporters.
