Standard of Michael Fannin McCartney

The arms were designed following the Scottish practice of "indeterminate cadency" based on the historical arms of several Scottish and Irish families named MacCartney/Macartney all of which featured a red stag trippant on a silver or gold field within a red bordure (in one case charged with roses) and in some cases with gold or silver attires (antlers). To avoid a too close visual similarity, the new arms initially changed the attires and bordure to blue, and later added the white saltires to the bordure for additional differentiation visible in outline or monochrome (e.g. signet or seal).
