Angles of the Cross

§10. In some few cases, but rarely in English heraldry, from the angles formed by the meeting of the arms there project certain charges, e.g. rays, acorns, fleur-de-lis, &c.; with rays the term rayonnante would be used. The French term is anglé of such a charge, but there is no English equivalent. Edmondson uses the expression "adorned at angles," but gives no example.

We now come to crosses which have special names, derived either from their general outline or from their termination.
