Design rationale

The arms of the DALY clan (Ireland). Per fess Argent and Or a Lion rampant per fess Sable and Gules between two dexter Hands apaumé in chief Gules. [I have not found crest.] The design uses a reverse of the shield, a design element which many Americans have used. The Irish name DALY (or DAILEY, as this family came to spell it) comes from O’Dalach or ‘grandson of Dalach (frequenting assemblies).’ The crest of DAILEY (America) borrows the gold ancient crown from one of the ancient symbols of Ireland (three gold ancient crowns on a blue field) through which a green (a favorite Irish color) stag is springing. Together with the motto, from where we spring, it is a reminder of the Irish roots of this family.
