The chief wears a crested badge surmounted by three feathers. It was the practise, however, for chiefs to allow their followers to wear the crest and motto in a silver strap-and-buckle badge. This is the clansmen's badge and if you are a member of the clan you may wear it. If the clan lacks a chief, no badge is worn." [ Sir Thomas Innes, in The Scottish Tartans ]
