The Arms of David Crichton Craig

The arms were granted for and in memory of the armiger's deceased grandfather, David Craig, farmer at Tregallon, Troqueer, Kircudbright.  His father, William Craig, was miller at Duncow Mill and farmer at West Duncow, Kirkmahoe, Dumfries.
 
The basic arms of Craig are 'a metal field with a fess Sable with three crescents of a metal thereon'. The millrinds and garb reflect the armiger's great-grandfather's milling and farming  interests. The choice of tincture for the charges was the armiger's.
 
The crest was suggested by Lord Lyon. 'Duncow' derives from 'Dun-choll' (a fort of hazels).
 
The motto, VIVITUR INGENIO (he lives by skill), was chosen to reflect both the armiger's and his antecedents' occupations.
