Clan Ross (Scottish Gaelic: Clann Anndrais) is a Highland Scottish clan. The first recorded chief of the Clan Ross was "Fearcher Mac an t-Sagirt" which in English meant "son of the priest" alluding to his Ó Beólláin descent from the hereditary Abbots of Applecross. Fearchar helped King Alexander II of Scotland (1214–1249) crush a rebellion by Donald Bane, a rival claimant to the Scottish throne. Fearchar was knighted by the king and by 1234 he was officially recognized with the title of Earl of Ross.
Clan Ross Badge
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.
