A mullet is a five-pointed star that represents the rowel of a spur. Depending on the number given on the blazon, it can also be a six-pointed star at times. When the number is not stated in German-Nordic heraldry, however, a six-pointed star is employed. When the blazon does not specify a number, however, a five-pointed star is assumed in Gallo-British heraldry. This can be observed in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and art.
