Fire-Breathing Dragons in Heraldry

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


While editing some of the heraldry on the wiki and adding the Personal Arms to infoboxes, I came across something strange. Some coats of arms, such as Bloodraven's or that of Aerion Targaryen, specify the color of flame being breathed by a dragon. In the blazon itself, in italics, should the dragon be referred to as "breathing", "vomiting", or "issuing" flame, or some other variant? I have tried searching for some authority to explicitly say so without just using it in passing, but to no avail. For example, Arthur Charles Fox-Davies in his Complete Guide to Heraldry mentions breathing flame several times, but never a dragon, and never explicitly mentions this as a rule. Please help!!
