On Behalf of the Clans of Ulster, I would firstly like to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support and involvement in our endeavours.
Our approach is one of celebrating the past through our rich shared history, folklore, music, language, culture and sports of this province of Ulster, combined with innovating for the future. Through these avenues, we hope to evolve and grow by the input and design of you, our members, with inclusiveness, equality, freedom of expression, uniqueness and transparency forefront in all our undertakings.
As a relatively new association we are not constrained by boundaries, borders, religious or political dogma, rather we celebrate our diversity and our commonality. Our primary focus is on the people, Clans, and Septs of this province and country as a whole. We also recognise the importance and yearning for those that feel compelled to identify with their birthright, The children, grandchildren and all those of the Diaspora, who left these ancient shores in search of a better life. We respect and give voice to those that have gone before us, and the sacrifices they made. We are a networked nation of people joined by common bonds.
The Clans of Ulster, have adopted this logo to signify our growth, our reaching out to all, whilst firmly rooted in the land and principles we set out to represent. The Tree of life is a recurring theme in the Celtic mythology in some shape or form, one of birth and renewal. The Knotwork banding circle represents continuation, a symbol without beginning or end, one that unites us together.
Although the image itself is popular & widespread, we felt that its simplicity and poignant message best represented our values visually, I hope you appreciate it as much as us.
