The Crescent is a semi-circular symbol used in Heraldry. It's placement is most often shown with the points upward. Most often colored yellow or gold, it was used in European Heraldry to denote Crusading Service. Other forms of symbolism are sometimes placed with it. It can also be used in some countries as a Cadency Mark.
