The per bend sinister is the "blazon" (heraldic speak) words for the picture shown - for dividing a coat of arms into two colours along a diagonal line sloping in that particular direction. I suggest you follow a few links to some of teh other articles on heraldry, blazon and line divisions. You may especially want to read on the sections on "colours" and "metals".
