Cross: Gurgity

Cross gurgity (SFPP)

The “cross gurgity” or “cross gurgitée”, while appearing in modern heraldry texts [e.g. Leonhard 291], does not seem to have been actually used in medieval armory.  Its use is considered a step from period practice.

Gwynneth Sanquebarr bears:  Azure, a fess argent between two crosses gurgity Or.

Uther Schiemann der Hunt bears:  Gules, a cross gurgity Or within a serpent in annulo head to base argent.
