Azure a Cross Lorraine pattee fitchy patonce Argent.

Crosses are not easy to be blazoned and several versions could easily be made. The Cross Lorraine is also called The Patriarchal Cross, 'pattee' means that the bars end wider then the center, though there are several other ways to describe that (and several variations in exact meaning, c.f. the Iron cross), 'fitchy' (or fichee) refers to the lower end of the cross being pointed, while 'patonce' means something "in between" of patte and fleury (i.e. the end is widening but have three "tails"). I believe that 'fitchy patonce' should be good description of the cross being patonced at lower end. I'm ready to hear other opinions, though. Also, I am sure that the original blazon does not bother with such "classifications".
