The convex shaped white base is decorated with eight pointed arcs in red at the lower edge. On the top end there is a hollow stump. Supposedly a further component,
now missing, was intended to be set inside this structure. Two impressive wings ascend with nine feathers each. Both are white in the lower half and show three green
six-pointed stars on the front side. The upper half repeats the red colour of the arcs. There are holes on the base serving to attach the crest to the helmet by laces,
three on each side and two on the front.
