Cross Gringolée


§21. Cross gringolée, is used only French heraldry, but it is typical of a cross of crosses which consist of a cross humetty, but with heads of animals or some such device issuing from the ends. (See under Cross, §7.) In the case of gringolée the heads of snakes are implied. Guivrée possibly has the same signification, i.e. with vipers' heads.
