Gyron (Period)

Gyron (Period)

A gyron is a single segment of a gyronny field.  It is described in period heraldic tracts [e.g., Legh 68], but does not appear to have been used (at least with that blazon) in period armory.  Hence, only the gyron found in the tracts – issuant from dexter chief as in the illustration – may be used in Society armory.  For related charges, see pile.

Iohann se pipere bears:  Sable, a gyron argent.

Martin de Montriere sur Mer bears:  Azure, on a gyron argent a heart sable.
