In 1911 the original Clan MacFarlane Society, An Comunn Chloinn Phàrlane, was established in Glasgow and London. The Secretary of this society was the historian James Macfarlane, Author of History of the Clan Macfarlane, The Honour of Lennox, The Red Fox, and the recently released Ean Dudh. Due to the events of World War I, and the following economic depression An Comunn Chloinn Phàrlane faded out of existence by 1922. In 1973 The Clan MacFarlane Society, Inc. was established at Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina and became heir to the original records of An Comunn Chloinn Phàrlane. Since 1973 the Clan MacFarlane Society, Inc. has grown into an international society with members world wide.At present, the Clan Chiefship is dormant. However, the International Clan MacFarlane Society, Inc. (https://macfarlane.org) has been recognised by the Court of the Lord Lyon as an official representative of the clan, with a grant of arms in the year 2000.
The Scottish Claymore sword is usually identified with the Scots as a symbol of pride and strength. The Claymore , or “Claidheamh-mor” (Great Sword) in Gaelic is a two handed broad sword utilized by the Scottish Highlander throughout several centuries. Used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from the 1400′s to 1650 and still in use as late as the 1745 Uprising, the two-handed Scottish Claymore Sword seems to be an offshoot of earlier broadswords as they were developed into great swords. The Scottish Claymore Sword was feared because of its strength and size. It was said that the bearer of a Scottish Claymore Sword needed no shield because the reach of the sword provided its own protection. Today, the Scottish Claymore Sword stands as a great symbol of Scottish heritage.
