ROBERTSON of Struan / Strowan
Gules, three wolves’ heads, erased, Argent, armed and langued, Azure.

Arms for the Chief of Clan Donnachaidh  The Motto Struan has two mottos in Latin, one in a scroll above the crest "Virtutis Gloria Merces" (Glory is the reward of valour), and the other below the compartment "Garg'n Uair Dhuisgear" (Fierce when roused).  The Helmet and Mantling  The wreath is of twisted cloth in the livery colours of its owner, red and silver in the case of Struan. The Crest is a right hand holding a regal crown.  The Supporters Struan has on peace (left) side, a green serpent with a red ribbon around its neck, and, on the war (right) side, a silver dove with a blue beak and a blue hat trimmed with ermine on its head.  The Shield Three wolves' heads, cut off at the neck, in silver, armed with blue tongues. This is a device bearing evidence to the fact our Clan killed the last wolves in the Isles. 	 Additional Device The man in chains is a device bearing evidence to the fact that the fourth Chief captured one of the murderers of James I. He was returned to the Queen "ALIVE" for torture and execution!

Robertson Haward Coat of Arms From William Vergo, Chester Herald, college of Arms, "the Arms displayed in the first and fourth quarters of the shield together with the first Crest are identical with those duly granted by Letters Patent bearing date the 25th May 1612 to Samuel Haward of the Isle of Hartye in the county of Kent, by William Segar, Garter King of Arms. Samuel is said to be the son of William Haward and grandson of Stephen Haward, and the Coat blazoned: Arms: Or a bull's head cabossed between three mullets sable. Crest: An arm vested sable cuffed or holding in the hand proper a human heart gulse, wilst the Arms depicted in the second and third quarters of the shield together with the second Crest and the chained man device is the very ancient Coat of the Robertsons of Straun or Strown in county Perth, Scotland. . . registered in the records of Lyon King of Arms in Scotland in 1672 and is blazoned: Arms: Gules three wolves heads erased argent armed and langued azure: lying on a compartment under the Arms a wind man chained. Crest: a dexter and hand erect holding a regal crown all proper. . .the motto in the scroll pendent from the armorial cartouche, namely VIRTUTIS GLORIA MERCES (Glory is the reward for valour) is that long used by the aforementioned Robertson family and the fact that the Crests of both Haward and Robertson are included above the shield in the achievement would suggest that double name of Robertson-Haward.
