Design rationale

Based on the arms of Frederick Henry McClurg and Timothy Michael McClurg. The ravens refer to a Scottish story in which a widow's sons by three different men performed archery to show prowess with weapons for Robert the Bruce while he was on the run from the English. The brother's names were Murdoch, McKie and McClurg. The brothers joined The Bruce's army until he became Robert I, King of Scotland. The book with quill is a charge taken from her father's crest (Timothy Michael McClurg). The quill is Purpure because purple is her favorite color.
