Plant Badge

Every Scottish clan has a plant badge - a sprig of the plant being worn in their bonnet in the old days as a recognition symbol - and that of the MacMillans is the Holly.


Or, a lion rampant Sable, armed and langued Gules, and in chief three mullets Azure


A dexter and a sinister hand issuing from the Wreath grasping and brandishing aloft a two-handed sword Proper

Please note that it is an offence under Scottish law to use a coat of arms that is registered in the Lyon Office to someone else; and that applies to clanspeople or clan societies putting the chief's arms on their notepaper or newsletters. Clan members and branches may however use their chief's crest enclosed in a buckled belt; as shown at right.
