The Buchanan family name has a number of different spelling variations. Clan members include those from families who are associated with the clan but have different surnames different to the Clan name (septs).
All clan members are entitled to wear the Buchanan family Crest badge when it is encircled by a belt and buckle. The crest is from the Clan Buchanan Chief’s Coat of Arms, and only the Clan Chief can display the complete Buchanan Coat of Arms, which is passed down directly to their heir.
