The Heraldry Society of Scotland

 
 

The Heraldry Society of Scotland was founded in 1977 with the objective of promoting the study of heraldry and encouraging its correct use in Scotland and Overseas.

The Society encourages people to join whether they have their own arms, intend to procure arms, or have a general interest in Scottish Heraldry. Our membership is made up of people from around the globe with many meeting regularly in the Society's very active Community Forum.

Meetings are held several times during the year for lectures or visits to places of historic and heraldic interest, both in Scotland and in other countries.

The Society is privileged to number many of Her Majesty's Officers of Arms among its members and a close liaison is maintained with The Court of the Lord Lyon.

Membership is open to any person interested in the study and practice of heraldry and allied subjects in Scotland and overseas. It is not necessary to possess a coat of arms to join the Society, but many members are either armigerous or intend to petition for a Grant or Matriculation of Arms at some stage in the future.

 

Members of the Society are of all ages and scattered around the world. Our members are interested in all aspects of armoury, some being actively and professionally engaged in heraldic arts and crafts or in academic research.

The Society runs various events throughout the year, here at home in the UK and overseas. They range through illustrated talks, lectures, visits to heraldic locations and various other events and activities.

Lectures and other articles of armorial interest are published in the Society's annual journal, The Double Tressure, which is distributed free to members along with a lighter occasional newsletter Tak Tent. In addition to these publications, the Society regularly produces other illustrated booklets on heraldic and related matters.
