A sail is a broad sheet of canvas, used by ships for catching the wind and pushing forward.  It’s a period charge, found in the canting arms (Italian vela) of da Velate, mid-15h C. [Triv 366].  The form shown in period arms is triangular (cf. also Guillim1 215); and this is the only permitted form for Society armory, pending documentation.

The King of Trimaris bears as a badge:   A sail fastened to its mast and hanging from its yardarm azure.

Morgan Grey Beard bears:  Argent, a sail vert fastened to its mast and hanging from its yardarm sable.
