    Hope I don't offend you with that question.
    Or as I would put it why have a flag of St Andrew when it is already included in the Union Flag.

    My Clan Crest



    Taken from the Pollock Clan Crest, as well as the Crest and Motto on the Pollock Coat of Arms, or... what I know as the Pollock Coat of Arms.

    After having perused the Court of the Lord Lyon website, I am now less certain of what I thought I knew about Heraldry and the historical possibilities associated with my Surname.

    That said, I still like the imagery and the motto.

    Nice looking tattoo, I like the imagery as well. How does the motto translate?

    Thank you! Audacter et Strenue translates to Boldly and Strongly, or Boldly and Earnestly... so say the google translators.
