Matheson Clan Crest

The Chief’s crest is a hand, holding a scimitar, emerging from a five-pointed crown; the correct heraldic description of this is“issuant from an eastern crown or, a dexter hand holding a scimitar, in fess all proper”. This crest is the exclusive personal property of the Chief, but it may be worn by his clansmen and clanswomen as long as it is surrounded by a strap and buckle carrying the Chief’s motto or slogan “Fac et Spera” (Do and Hope). The strap and buckle motif is the sign of the clansman or clanswoman, who demonstrates membership of the Chief’s clan by wearing the Chief’s crest within it.
