In ancient times the crest was worn on the chief's helmet so that he could be recognized by his warriors in battle. Besides being placed on the wreath above the helmet on the coat of arms, in the case of the Earls of Glencairn, the unicorn is found within a strap-and-buckle crest badge upon which is inscribed our motto "Over Fork Over." Today, Clan Cunningham strap-and-buckle crest badges can be worn as a cap badge or on a kilt pin by clansmen and loyal supporters to show their loyalty to the clan.
