The Arms of Ernest Oliver Joseph McMillan

The arms were adopted by Dr Robert W. McMillan and E. O. Joseph McMillan for use by themselves and other descendants of Rustem Warthen McMillan (1872-1928), farmer and merchant in Oak Grove and Sylacauga, Alabama. The design derives from the arms of MacMillan of MacMillan and Knap, "Or a lion rampant Sable in chief three stars Azure," chief of the clan. The lion's posture is changed to passant, as it appears in the earliest known MacMillan arms. The stars are voided argent, presenting white stars on a blue field, an allusion to the United States. The bar wavy in base refers to Tallasahatchee Creek in Alabama, where Rustem W. McMillan's grandfather, Daniel McMillan, established the family farm in the 1830s. Alternatively, the composition can be interpreted as a graphic depiction of the motto, which comes from a passage by Horace, "Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt"--Those who travel across the sea (the MacMillan lion passing over the bar wavy) change their skies (the voiding of the stars) but not their souls.

The crest depicts a typical weapon used by the Creek Indians who previously occupied the land on which Daniel McMillan settled. It replaces the two-handed Highland claymore in the MacMillan of Knap crest.
