The columbine is a droopy-petaled flower, which was held to have medicinal value in period. It’s a period charge, found as early as 1461, in the arms of the Worshipful Company of Cooks [Bromley & Child 53]. The columbine is drawn in a somewhat stylized manner, with the petals resembling doves (hence the name); it is pendant by default. When “proper”, the columbine has blue petals.
