Slogan (heraldry)

A slogan is used in Scottish heraldry as a heraldic motto or a secondary motto. It usually appears above the crest on a coat of arms, though sometimes it appears as a secondary motto beneath the shield.[1] The word slogan dates from 1513. It is a variant of the earlier slogorn, which was an Anglicisation of the Scottish Gaelic sluagh-ghairm (sluagh "army", "host" + gairm "cry").[2]

The slogan CREAG AN TUIRC appears on the crest badge of a member of Clan MacLaren.
Arms of Brady Brim-DeForest, Baron of Balvaird with the motto above the crest.
