From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Example of the hamade in the escutcheon.

Hamade[a] is an heraldic ordinary in the shape of three bars placed one under another, not touching the edges of the field.[1] The bars can be of equal length or have the top bar longer than the bottom one. They can have straight edges, or skewed edges, with their base being shorter than their top.[2]


The name derives from French word haméïde,[3] and comes from the name of the village of Lahamaide, Belgium, which used the ordinary in its coat of arms.[4]
