  • The Raven (MISSING find)   " according to the best authorities, the symbol of the Raven comes to Clan MacDougall from it's Viking ancestors. It comes as a bird of state and the companion of gods. Two Raven rode upon the shoulders of Odin. Their names were "thought" and "memory", for the Raven is said to be the wisest of birds. Some scholars have seen in the pictorial representations of the prows of the MacDougall galley a raven rather than the traditional dragon head. A tradition among the MacDougalls of Lunga says that the MacDougall galleys flew a "raven flag".
