PANACHE

Picture of Panache

In heraldry, a panache is a plume of feathers, generally ostrich feathers, set upright and borne as a crest. A panache sometimes consists of a single row of feathers; but usually it has two or more rows or 'heights' of feathers, rising one above the other. generally the tips of the feathers are erect, but sometimes they wave or are bent over. A panache may be charged with some device or figure 'for difference'.
