The Arms of Dr George Carruthers

The design of the arms is based upon those of the chiefly arms of Carruthers, but differenced with chevronells and a pheon to replace the fleur-de-lis on the base. The pheon was chosen to refer to the ďlang spearĒ or Border lance used by Border Reivers, of which the armigerís family belonged and who were considered to be some of the finest light cavalry in Europe at the time. The crest is in keeping with the other armigers of his family who have angels, with the figure of the Archangel Michael being chosen.

St Michael is the patron saint and principle charge of Dumfries, the area around which all Carruthers originate and depicts spirituality, morality and leadership; attributes continually striven for in daily life. He is also closely associated with the healing arts, which represents the armigerís professional life. As an Archangel, St Michael is also depicted as a warrior, reflecting nearly 50 years by the armiger in the study and practice of karate and the grade he has attained.

In classic depictions, St Michael is normally identified defeating Satan, usually depicted as a beast, by standing over him. Therefore, blazoning the crest as, the figure of the Archangel Michael pinning the beast, seemed by far the more appropriate wording.

The motto chosen, Non Sto Solus (I do not stand alone), references the attitude of Reivers to each other and within their family setting. It therefore refers to the closeness of the armigerís own family as well as his own spiritual beliefs.
