In heraldry, the baton is an ordinary in the shape of a thin diagonal line starting in the dexter chief, but not reaching the edges of the shield. It is a diminutive of the bend. If the baton starts in the sinister chief it is called a baton sinister.

In fencing, a baton is a walking stick that can be used as a defensive weapon.
