The Arms of The Armorial Register

All those who have registered their armorial bearings in The International Register of Arms may freely display the arms, or any part of the armorial bearings (such as the crest alone) of The Armorial Register Limited to show their association with the register. Where possible, please try and make it clear that the armorial bearings are those of The Armorial Register Limited; such a display would be fully permitted by the laws of arms in Scotland and the rest of world. If used electronically a link back to the Armorial Register - International Register of Arms using http://www.armorial-register.com would be appreciated.

Information and Rational behind the Arms

The armorial bearings of The Armorial Register Limited were designed by the directors of the Company and the design was graciously accepted and granted, without alteration, by the Lord Lyon King of Arms in Scotland.

Grant of Arms The Armorial Register Ltd.

The Lord Lyon King of Arms of Scotland is a Minister of State and member of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Royal Household.

He is Head of the Heraldic Executive and the Judge of the Court of the Lord Lyon, which has jurisdiction over all heraldic business in Scotland and maintains the Scottish Public Registers of Arms and Genealogies. The position of Lord Lyon in Scotland dates from around 1437 with the present 'Register of Arms' at Lyon Court dating from 1672.

The Armorial Register Limited is a company registered in the Kingdom of Scotland and it is a legal requirement that all armorial bearings used in Scotland must be recorded in the Register of All Arms and Bearings of Scotland kept by the Lord Lyon King of Arms. It is unlawful in Scotland for anyone to use arms unless they have been so recorded. The directors of The Armorial Register Limited are extremely proud that the company is now lawfully an armigerous corporation. 

The shield was designed by Martin Goldstraw, editor and director, and the crest was designed by John Duncan of Sketraw, web master and director. Martin composed the motto as being appropriate to the work of The Register. 

The thoughts behind the design are: 

Arms: The livery colours represent the home of the Company, Scotland, with each escutcheon representing an entry in the Register all linked together to form the Register itself which is published in book form as each volume is filled. 

Crest: The lion is, arguably, the most recognisable of all the heraldic beasts. Here, he is attempting to stretch his grasp around the world. 

Motto: Fulfilment by Achievement.  

The motto is worthy in its own right as a corporate motto but it also alludes to the fact that each volume of the register is added to achievement by achievement until it is ready (fulfilled) for publication as a book.
