Arms of Darin Yawn as interpreted by the Armiger

Motto:  Semper Curiosus

Design Rationale:

I can trace my genealogy back through Murrays that came from Ireland around 1850. While DNA does confirm they originated in Scotland, some research indicates they left only as recently as the mid-1700s. All of this merely explains my interest and dedication to the Murray Clan (Society) as well as Scottish heraldry. Based on the Murray arms, I removed the royal tressure (I have no known connection to the Murray chief's line, only the surname). The lymphad charge represents me as a sailor and my family's arrival to the USA by way of Ireland (harp). The 11 roundels are an homage to our unsung clan hero, Andrew de Moray whose arms held the same (color unspecified, likely argent/azure/sable in some form). The peacock ("...head with long neck between two arms vested grasping the head by the beak and back") was an old crest of the Murrays of Tullibardine. My first heraldic research project was to demonstrate that while this crest is inappropriate to use as a "clan crest", it is not associated with our clan in error and instead has a well-documented history with the chief's line and deserves documentation. "My" peacock is yawning, a canting of my surname.
