As we have seen, Beasts on Arms were given a posturing (known as an Attribute). Each Attribute had a different meaning. These attributes were slightly different when conveying meaning to the use of birds in Heraldry. There were 6 “known” “Flying Attributes” used. They are as follows:

  1. Close

  2. Displayed

  3. Rising

  4. Affront

  5. Striking

  6. Migrant

These Attributes were used exclusively for Flying symbols.
