This larger Douglas Clan Crest pendant with cut-out detail bears the motto `JAMAIS ARRIERE' (Never behind). The crest is a salamander atop a flaming cap. This jewelry piece is a wearable connection to your Scottish ancestry and measures about 2.5cm by 3cm (just under an inch by just over an inch). It can be made to order in sterling silver or gold.
The Douglas family name has a number of different spelling variations. Clan members include those from families who are associated with the clan but have surnames different to the clan name (septs).
All clan members are entitled to wear the Douglas family Crest badge when it is encircled by a belt and buckle. The crest is from the Clan Douglas Chief's Coat of Arms, and only the Clan Chief can display the complete Douglas Coat of Arms, which is passed down directly to their heir. The court of the Lord Lyon does not recognize a current chief, as the main contender for the title has a double-barrelled surname of Douglas-Hamilton, and is also the Hamilton Clan Chief.
