Scottish Roots

Scottish Heritage - Celebrate Your Roots is here written in Scottish Gaelic, and English, entwined around Jen Delyth's iconic Celtic Tree of Life artwork. The Montrose Shield and Lyon Rampant was chosen to represent Scotland and her people at the heart of the Tree of Life.
Our ancestral roots reach back through history and generations as we celebrate the culture that continues to grow and evolve as a living tradition in our lives today.

COMHARAICH DO FHREUMHAN is Scots' Gaelic for "Celebrate Your Roots"
Thanks to friends in Glasgow and Seamus for this special case translation, which required words that would give connotations of both botanical roots and familial roots. It required a "bardic" turn of phrase, using the old Gaelic love of double entendre and symbolism as opposed to a literal one.

For "roots" - choices were narrowed down to reumhach or freumhach over a number of other possible choices (such as preamh or stoc). Its meanings include being both plant roots and family lineage.
