Next in importance after the honourable ordinaries are the sub-ordinaries. The sub-ordinaries are variations of the honourable ordinaries and were invented because so many different shields were needed it would have not been possible if only the limited number of honourable ordinaries were used.
Each of the honourable ordinaries has their own variations.
These are a few of the sub-ordinaries of the cross. There are many more but all of these can be used in the shield designer. See below.
Quarterly sable and gules a
maltese cross or
Argent a cross crosslet gules
Roundels are discs and they have different names depending on their colour. The colours and names are shown below. Normally the bezants (gold), plates (silver) and fountains (blue and white wavy lines) should be drawn flat while the other roundels are shaded to give them a spherical shape. The current version on the shield designer does not do this.
Argent on a fess gules between
three pellets three fountains.
Azure on a bend or three torteaus
You can choose to add one of the additional divisions shown above to your shield. These can be found on the 'Set Field Division' popup. At the bottom of the popup is a 'More' button that will give you these extra division styles.
More sections will be added at a later date. I hope this has given you a good introduction to heraldry.
A: Dexter Chief
B: Middle Chief
C: Sinister Chief D: Honour Point E: Fess-point (middle of shield)
F: Nombril / Naval point
G: Dexter Base
H: Middle Base
I: Sinister Base
