Trillium

Trillium (SFPP)

Trillium (SFPP)

The trillium is a flower native to North America, with three large white petals atop a whorl of three sepals (hence its name).  Its form is similar to the charge known as the tierce-feuille, in the arms of von Buderich, c.1370 [Gelre 93].  However, as a New World flower, the trillium’s use is considered a step from period practice.

The trillium is shown affronty by default, with a petal to base; it has no proper tincture in Society armory.

The King of Ealdormere bears:  Gules, a trillium flower affronty argent, barbed vert, within a laurel wreath, in chief a coronet argent.

Seamus a’ Chnuic Ghuirm bears:  Argent, a trillium purpure barbed vert and seeded Or.

Isabel Dancere bears:  Vert, three trilliums argent and a chief Or.
