The Flame Shield.

Shields are a recurring type of Armor in the Final Fantasy series. They generally increase Defense and may also have a random chance to block an attack. Examples of recurring shields from the series include the Aegis Shield and the Hero's Shield. Shields tend to have two subdivisions - "heavy" shields, which only physical attackers like Warriors and Dragoons can use, and "light" or "universal" shields, which any class including mages can use.
