Arms of the Clan Crawford Association (CAA) - The House of Crawford

* The following blazon and/or emblazonment are certified by the armiger to be his/her original (or inherited) lawful property.

  • Arms: Gules, a fess Ermine, surmounted overall at centre point of a stag's head erased Proper attired Or between the tynes a cross crosslet fitchée of the Last.
  • Crest: None
  • Motto: Tutum Te Robore Reddam

Design Rationale

The arms are based on the ancient stem arms of House Crawford, Gules a Fess Ermine. The stag's head and cross was the crest of the arms of the last official chief of the name. Since a Scottish clan's badge always uses the crest and motto of the chief's arms, they also appear on the clan badge of Crawford.

The stag and cross-crosslet fitchée harken back to an old tradition about an early Crawford who supposedly saved King David I of Scotland from a marauding stag during a hunting excusrion. The spot where this occurred is where Holyrood Abbey now stands, in Edinburgh.

The stag and cross is also the ancient emblem of St. Hubert, patron saint of hunters.
