[Clan Murray Crest] Clan Murray Crest

[Blue Marble Line]


Gaelic: aitionn

The plant, which is Juniper, was worn in the bonnet to determine one's clan association.


The crests of the Murrays are the mermaid, the peacock's head, and the demi-savage. The mermaid is considered the legal crest by Lord Lyon, but the present Duke prefers the demi-savage. The words on the demi-savage are: ""Furth, Fortune, and Fill the Fetters". The words commemorate the capture of the last Lord of the Isles by the first Murray, Earl of Atholl, in 1475.
