Clansman’s Badge/Crest
A demi-piper all Proper, garbed in a proper tartan of the Clan MacLennan.

Strictly, it is not the Crest of the Clan but of the Chief – it is part of his Arms and as such his personal property. He gives his permission for a clansman to wear it enclosed within the belt and buckle and it is legally known as a clansman’s crest or badge.

Dum spiro spero (Latin: While I breathe, I hope)
