Clan Badge, M-Z

Historically, it was the custom for Clan Chiefs to give their followers a metal plate of their crest, to be worn as a badge of allegiance which would be fastened to their clothing with a strap and buckle. 

When not in use, the belt was coiled around the crest. This convention is used in the clan crest badges of today.

Only a Clan Chief may wear the crest without the strap and buckle.
