2.3 Blazon and emblazonment

THE BLAZON

The blazon is the verbal description of arms which must be very accurate. It has its own language.


French blazons are in modern French in which old Norman terms appear.



English blazons are in a mixture of English and an anglicized form of Old Norman.

The blazon below is of the arms above.
