Meaning of SUBORDINARY

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Sub*or"di*na*ry\, n. (Her.)
One of several heraldic bearings somewhat less common than an
ordinary. See {Ordinary}.

Note: Different writers name different bearings as
      subordinaries, but the bar, bend, sinister, pile,
      inescutcheon bordure, gyron, and quarter, are always
      considered subordinaries by those who do not class them
      as ordinaries.
