King's College Chapel heraldry VII
King's College Chapel heraldry VII
Quarterly, 1st and 4th argent three antique crowns gules; 2nd and 3rd azure three frases argent [A shield divided into quarters; the first and fourth silver (white) with three antique crowns; the 2nd and 3rd blue with three silver cinquefoils (frases or strawberry flowers)]. Arms of James Fraser (died 1731), who supported the University in the aftermath of the turmoil of the 'Fifteen (the 1715 uprising), see: LinkExternal link .
My dodgy translation: "James Fraser: a man never to be named without praise, the one-and-only muse, supporter and benefactor of his mother Aberdeen. From a time of tottering and collapse, he alone is building for the future"
