'''Charges''' are the things that appear on the "field" of a [[device]]. [[Period]] examples include a myriad forms of [[cross]]es (including crosses formy), [[animal]]s ([[leopard]]s, [[lion]]s, [[cattl]]e), [[plant]]s and plant parts ([[rose]]s, [[thistle]]s etc), celestial objects ([[comet]]s, [[star]]s, [[sun]]s, [[moon]]s), [[weapon]]s ([[Sword]]s, [[spear]]s etc), tools (fleams, [[hammer]]s etc) or pieces of anatomy ([[head]]s, [[eye]]s, [[limb]]s, [[moustache]]s). Charges also include [[ordinary|ordinaries]].
 
 
Charges are different from [[lines of division]] and the [[field]].
