Label (heraldry)
In heraldry, a label (occasionally lambel, the French form of the word) is a charge resembling the strap crossing the horse's chest from which pendants are hung.

In most cases the horizontal band extends right across the shield, but there are several examples in which the band is truncated. As a mark of difference[edit]Label on an escutcheonIn European heraldry in general, the label was used to mark the elder son, generally by the princes of the royal house
