The '''orlets''' (meaning eaglet), is a small rug, usually round, for an Orthodox [[bishop]] to stand on during services at which he officiates. The eagle depicted on the rug represents an eagle overlooking and hovering over a city, just as the [[bishop]] through his consecration is called to be an overseer of his city, the flock entrusted to his care. It is used primarily in the [[Church of Russia|Russian Orthodox Church]].
