The orlets (Russian: Орлец, 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 Russian Orthodox Church.
