The Grant of Arms - surrounded by the Mantling for the Barony of Craighall - is based on the shield generally representative of the members of the Clan Lindsay with, in chief, the Lion passant guardant representing Scottish roots and of the manner and custom of his life's traits of being vigilant in protecting together with, in base, a Pot of three Lilies representing his city of birth - the City and Royal Burgh of Dundee. The Crest - above the baronial chapeau - is the Swan of the Lindsay Family embellished with the Maple Leaf of Canada.

The Motto - Festina Lente - Hasten Slowly - is indicative of methodically moving forward as fast as is practicable.

The Badge showing in the Standard is the Trillium - representing not only the Holy Trinity but also the provincial flower of Ontario - surrounded by a circlet of lime leaves - indicative of the Lindsays
