This magnificent MacEwen Clan Crest signet ring shows the motto `REVIRESCO' (I grow strong again); the crest shows a trunk of an oak tree regenerating. The wide band is polished and smooth, gently tapering from the face towards the back.
There are many spelling variations for the Clan MacEwen family surname. Included are families (known as Septs) with different surnames from the original Clan name.

According to information from the Clan MacEwen Society, the MacEwen Clan Crest badge is not derived from the arms of a previous chief of the clan. However, it appears to have been in use among the Galloway McEwens from an early date. The process of appointing a new chief is well underway, and may be official late 2024. The wearing of your Clan MacEwen Chief’s Crest badge is a way of honoring your Clan association and your Scottish Family Ancestry.
