Clan Logan Badge, Scottish Clan Logan, Highland Clan, Lowland Clan
There are two distinct branches of the Logan clan - one Lowland and one Highland. Likely a territorial name deriving from the lands of Logan in Ayrshire, the name was first recorded in 1204. The principal seat of the Logan clan was in Restalrig, near Edinburgh.
Clan Logan have a shared history with the MacLennans, to the extent that the two clans share a tartan.
The Logan clan motto is "Hoc majorum virtus" (This is the valour of my ancestors) and the clan crest is a nail piercing a heart.
The leading Logan family's principal seat was in Lastalrig or Restalrig, near Edinburgh. Sir Robert Logan of Restalrig married Katherine Stewart, daughter of Robert II of Scotland, and later in 1400 Sir Robert was appointed Admiral of Scotland.
Each item begins as a piece of bronze sheet metal. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. The pin back is soldered on. A patina has been applied giving the metal that aged look. A clear polymer coating is applied to the face of the badge.
