Shadow - Heraldry


In heraldry, when a charge is supposedly shown in shadow (the appearance is of the charge merely being outlined in a neutral tint rather than being of one or more tinctures different from the field on which it is placed), it is called umbra-ted. Supposedly only a limited number of specific charges can be so depicted. Shadows can be colored by a colored transparent source of the shadow.
