In heraldry, a charge which is fimbriated has an outline in a different tincture. Only simple geometric charges may be fimbriated. Fimbriation is often used to allow a metal charge on a metal field, or a colour charge on a colour field.
Fimbriation in the SCA
In SCA heraldry a fibriated charge must pass through the centre of the field. The device of the East Kingdom features a fimbriated laurel wreath. As the laurel wreath is a complex charge the SCA College of Heralds would not register these arms if they were to receive the submission now.
