This beautiful Shaw Clan Crest pendant bears the motto `FIDE ET FORTITUDINE' (by faith and fortitude); the crest shows a right arm holding a dagger. The pendant measures about 17mm across.
There are several spelling variations for the Clan Shaw surname. Throughout the centuries, surnames have continued to 'develop' often leading to surprising variants of the original Shaw spelling.
The Shaw Clan Crest, which all family members are entitled to wear when the crest badge is encircled by a belt and buckle, is from the crest on the top of the Clan Shaw Chief’s Coat of Arms. The complete Shaw Coat of Arms is displayed only by the Clan Chief and passes down directly to their heir. The wearing of your Clan Shaw Chief’s Crest badge is a way of honoring your Chief, your Clan association and your Scottish family ancestry.
