From its early days the Society used the head of Minerva (Athena) in its documents.
It also used the Royal Arms - for example in the board listing Past Presidents of the Society.
In 1978 it was granted a full coat of arms including supporters and Athena as a crest Grant of Arms.
The earliest version of the Society's website used a scan of the Minerva head as logo.
In 2013 the Society commissioned the local illustrator Sandy Mackenzie <firstname.lastname@example.org> to create the computer file based on the description and original painting from the Lord Lyon.
For its Bicentenary, the Society commissioned a special version of its coat-of-arms from Mark Dennis (formerly Ross Herald Extraordinary in the Court of the Lord Lyon), now an eminent heraldic artist. He kindly produced this without cost to the Society. The Bicentenary coat-of-arms was used for communications and documents during the bicentenary period, and on commemorative merchandise as appropriate.
