Early Scottish history is quite murky, as is the case with the origins of Clan Buchanan. The Buchanan clan is thought to have originated in 1016 A.D. when young Anselan O’Kyan fled Ireland. He was the son of the reigning Ulster monarch and was forced to flee Ireland by Canute the Dane after participating in the slaughter of many of Canute’s men. Anselan either gained land near Loch Lomand after service to King Malcolm II of Scotland or gained it through marriage to the daughter of the Earl of Lennox. The first evidence of a Buchanan clan was recorded in this area in 1225.
Highland Clan Flags are intended for indoor or outdoor use. The flags are made from 70 denier high tenacity nylon, chosen for durability and ability to meet our exacting color standards. A rigourous process ensures colours are locked in for long use, and all edges are double stitched for added strength.
Our clan flags are packaged in robust, clear plastic sleeves that both display and protect the contents - perfect for gifts!
Each package includes a fine printed scroll offering an outline of your Clan's history.
