It’s called a wheat sheaf if it’s sitting in a field, a freshly cut bundle of wheat grass drying in the sun. If it’s painted on a shield or embroidered on a doublet or carved into an intaglio seal, then it’s called a Garb. The garb has been used in heraldry for hundreds and hundreds of years. It was originally used by the Earl of Chester and has been identified with that family and it’s offshoots for centuries. It was symbolic of plenty.
