Fimbriated, (fr. bordé): said by strict heralds to be applied only to an ordinary or other charge having a narrow edging of some other tincture all round it, so that if ant part touches the outer edging of the shield without the border being continued in that part the term should not be applied, but the term edged instead. This distinction, however, is never adhered to in practice. The crosses, for instance, in what is termed the Union Jack(see flag) are always blazoned as fimbriated, and many other examples might be cited. When applied to the dolphin is probably only extends along the dorsal ridge.
Argent, on a fesse engrailed sable, fimbriated or, between two greyhounds courant of the second, three fleur-de-lys of the third--BAKER.
Gules, on a bend sable fimbriated or, two pierced mullets and as many ducks argent membered of the first alternately--Sir Robert RUSSELL.
