In heraldry, a line which is drawn invecked (or invected) is made up of a series of semi-circles touching each other side by side. On an ordinary the line is drawn with the points towards the ordinary, and away from the field. In the case of a simple line division the general consensus seems to be that the lines will point towards the chief, with the exception of per pale when it will point towards the dexter. To really annoy a herald ask him to emblazon per pall invecked.
