In Dutch the charges of the coat of arms are called molenijzer, in French fer de moulin. According to C.Pama's Prisma van heraldiek en genealogie (1990) the form as above is typical Dutch. Outside the Low Countries it has different forms and names (English: millrind, ink-moline, French: anille, German: Mühleisen) and is in Dutch called antiek molenijzer.
