Créquier (Period)

Créquier (Period)

The créquier is a highly stylized depiction of the wild cherry tree; unlike other trees, however, it is always depicted in this stylized form.  It is found in the canting arms of Crequy as early as 1450 [GATD 74].

Because most trees (e.g., oak) were depicted in the style of the créquier in early period heraldry, no difference is granted between them.

Morberie of Tor Denly bears:  Argent, a créquier plant azure.

Richenda du Jardin bears:  Per pale azure and argent, a créquier counterchanged.

Orlando dei Medici bears:  Or, a créquier vert.
