Collection: Clan Gordon Emblems

The Gordon Clan traces its origins to Sir Adam de Gordon, who lived in the 12th century and was granted lands in the Borders region of Scotland. The clan's early history is closely linked to the Gordon family's rise to prominence and their acquisition of estates and titles throughout Scotland. Clan Gordon played a significant role in Scottish history, particularly during the turbulent periods of clan warfare and Jacobite uprisings. The clan was known for its military prowess, loyalty to the Scottish crown, and alliances with other powerful clans and families.
