The use of “Semy” in Heraldry, is the placement of smaller objects throughout The Field – to cover it entirely. This could be Roundels, Pillets etc. In some cases, miniature “Charges” could be used (Lions, Beasts etc). The tincture was different to reflect a more “solid coloring”. This was a popular Field Style in the early to mid-Middle Ages.
