These images came from the Clan &
Family Encyclopeadia edited by George Way.
The definition of Clansmen or Clanswomen covers the Chief's relatives, including his/her immediate family, and ALL members of the extended family called the Clan, whether bearing the Clan surname, or that of one of its Septs; in sum, all those who profess allegiance to that Chief and wish to demonstrate their association with the Clan.|
It is correct for these to wear their Chief's Crest encircled with a STRAP AND BUCKLE bearing their Chief's Motto or Slogan. The strap and buckle is the sign of the Clansman, and he demonstrates his membership of the Clan by wearing his Chief's Crest within it. Although the Crest Badge is purchased by and is therefore owned by the Clansman, the heraldic Crest and Motto on it belong to the Chief and NOT to the clansman. They are the Chief's exclusive heraldic property, which the Clansman is only thus permitted to wear.
At Highland Games wherever they may take place, where other Clans are present, it is proper to display flags which show the Clan Fraser Clansmen's Crest Badge, comprising the Chief's Crest with a strap and buckle inscribed with the Motto or Slogan, although the name of the Clan should NOT be added, as Clansmen should know their own Crest Badge.
The flag may be either a Banner (flown from a vertical pole attached to one side of it) or a Gonfanon (suspended from a horizontal cross bar along its top edge).
However, it is NOT correct to use the Banner or Gonfanon in the presence of the Chief, only when the Chief is not present.
The Standard may ONLY be used by the Chief, and
the standard of a Chief who is a Lord of Parliament should be
Any flag bearing the plain arms may only be used by the Chief.
The Pinsel is a flag used to denote a person to whom the Chief has delegated authority to represent him on a particular occasion. It should be 4'6" long and 2' high.
