Grant of arms to Scottish House:

The Court of Lord Lyon, Edinburgh, has granted arms to Scottish House. The Hon Laurie Ferguson MLA, Federal Member, unveiled the Scottish House arms at the Burns Day BBQ watched by President Mr Rob Riddding.

The grant describes the Arms: Per pale Azure and Argent within an orle of chains counterchanged dexter a saltire couped of the second, sinister a representation of the Southern Cross of the first, on a chief Gules two open books leaved Argent bindings Or.

This design recognises the Scottish House connection with our Scottish heritage, represented by the saltire, whilst representing the same within Australia, indicated by the Southern cross, all bound by the chains; the encircling chains represents the role of Scottish House in the sense of its motto: "Communicate, Cooperate, Coordinate" and as an "umbrella" organization for other Scottish societies. The heraldic device of dividing the shield "per pale" is the usual manner of representing a marriage between armigers and, in this corporate application, represents the bond that Scottish House provides between the two countries; the open books represent the Library, Information and Cultural Centre, fostering and encouraging interest in all matters pertaining to Scottish culture and traditions, especially in relation to Scottish activities in Australia.
