Angus Herald

Angus Herald of Arms in Extraordinary is a current Scottish herald of arms in Extraordinary of the Court of the Lord Lyon.

The name of the office is derived from the noble title of the Earl of Angus (currently a subsidiary title of the Duke of Hamilton). The office was active from 1490 to 1513.

The badge of office is A salamander Vert encircled with flames of fire Or all ensigned of the Crown of Scotland Proper. The badge was created in the spring of 2009 by Lord Lyon King of Arms David Sellar. The badge was taken from the crest of the Earl of Angus without the baronial chapeau, on which the salamander usually stands.

The office is currently held by Robin O. Blair, Esq., CVO, WS, the former Lord Lyon. He was appointed to this post on the 17 March 2008.
