Clan Oliphant Chieftains

Highland Chieftains are the heads of large branches of the Clan. They wear, along with the plant badge of the clan, 2 eagle feathers. Chieftains have their own coat of arms, and may have their own crest (as opposed to other armigerous Clansman, who usually display the crest of their chief in a strap and buckle.) Although they are subordinate to the Clan Chief, they usually have full control over their branch.
