French Merlette, not to be confused with English Martlet

Note: In English heraldry the Martlet is a representation of a House-Marten bird, like a swallow. Many if not most of the images shown in this category, especially the computer drawn ones, with duck-like bodies, long swan-like necks & chopped-off beaks and feet, are not representative forms from English heraldry, but show the Merlette of French Heraldry. The two forms should not be confused. The category has now been split into two: Category:Martlets (English) in heraldry & Category:Merlettes (French martlets) in heraldry.

Català: Merleta a l'heràldica
Deutsch: Merletten in der Heraldik
English: Martlets in heraldry

Attention: This category contains media relating to a heraldic figure displayed in the shield.

It is a subcategory of Category:Heraldic figures.

In this context, as for all the other subcategories of Category:Heraldic figures, heraldry means shield, and not crest. In the same way, "Category:Heraldic figures" must not be confused with the "Category:Heraldic external ornaments".

The Commons:WikiProject Heraldry will help you to organize and sort coats of arms images.
For description and categorization, the template {{Tincture}} can be used.
