The Chief's Coat of Arms:  In 1010 King Malcolm II dipped three fingers into the blood of the slain Danish general Camus and drew vertical stripes upon the shield of Robert, leader of the Catti troops. These stripes became the identifying marks for Robert's descendants, under the surname of Keith, along with a motto quoting Malcolm's words, "Veritas Vincit". However, the official arms as stated by the Lyon Court enters a fourth pallet of red which is now the correct description for Keith and is seen in the arms of Keith-Marischal and Earls of Kintore. History says Malcolm drew three bloody stripes. The fourth stripe may represent poetic license.
