Device Documentation

O-umajirushi: A 17th-Century Compendium of Samurai Heraldry translated and annotated by Xavid "Kiho" Pretzer p. 91 says "The motif has been used since at least the 11th century."

The tomoe is a period Japanese charge, generally used in threes. Attached are a few period banner designs including mon of three tomoe. The first three are from /O-umajirushi/, published in Japan by 1644. The last one, three tomoe in a square enclosure, is from /Kenmon Shokamon/, published in Japan around 1470.

This documentation was used in a badge submission for Miura no Matatarou Koreyoshi.

There is a step from period practice for use of Non-European charge.
