Forming a pair.
Origin: From Latin jugatus ("yoked together in pairs"), from Jugum ("pair, ridge, chain of mountains")
Within the trade of political collectibles, a jugate consists of two portraits side by side. Often this would be a presidential and vice presidential candidates although sometimes a state or local candidate is included with a presidential candidate. Jugates may be seen on medals, pinbacks, buttons, posters or other campaign items. If a third candidate is on the item, it is called a trigate.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
