The lotus is a cup-shaped flower, said to induce a dreamy languor and forgetfulness. The flower may be found in heraldry either affronty (top image) or in profile (bottom image), with neither being default; the exact orientation must thus be specified. No examples have been found in period armory; in modern armory, the lotus affronty is the badge of India [Guide 204].
