Fortrose Coat of Arms

A photograph of the Fortrose coat of arms, with the motto: 'From age to age endure'.

The rose in the top left of the coat of arms refers to St. Moluag of Lismore, a famous Celtic missionary, who played a leading role in the foundation of the Rosemarkie church. The stag's head originates from the arms of the Mackenzie Earls of Seaforth, while the silver lion signifies the arms of Ross. The ramparts crowning the coat of arms represent Fortrose Castle. The second rose was added below the lion, as the old seal of the diocese of Ross contained two roses.
