Today scottish crest badges are commonly used by members of scottish clans however much like clan tartans scottish crest badges do not have a long history and owe much to victorian era romanticism and the dress of the highland regiments scottish crest badges have only been worn by clan members on the bonnet since the 19th century. The clan is a concept which dates back to the 12th century the scottish clans were originally extended networks of families who had loyalties to a particular chief but the word clan is derived from the gaelic clann meaning literally children. The specific source of our classification is the clan and family encyclopaedia written by george way and romilly squire both eminent scholars and officials of the standing council of scottish chiefs and lord lyons office. The scottish clan system seems to have been pretty well established by the 11th and 12th century but signs of their existence go back as far as the 6th century the word clan comes from the gaelic word clann which meant family offspring children and thats basically what they still represent large family groups
