Modern Durie Coats of Arms

Arms of the Chief of the Name and Arms of Durie, Andrew Maule Dewar Durie of Durie, CBE DL
The Arms are the same as those of Abbot George Durie in the 16th Century and Captain George Durie, granted in 1672


Arms of Sir David Durie, KCMG, KStJ, FRSA.
These were granted after his service as Governor of Gibraltar, and show a variant of the classic Durie chevron and crescents with a Campbell gyronny of eight, with allusions to the rock of Gibraltar and a motto which reflects both the rock and Sir David's Christian faith.
Arms of Dr Bruce Durie, Shennachie to the Chief.
These reflect the original Arms of Robert Durie of Durie in the 16th Century, and earlier Duries, with the addition of a triple-towered abbey. This is taken from the Arms of Bruce's home town, Kirkcaldy, previously Abbotshall parish, which was owned by Dunfermline Abbey.
Arms of Alistair Durie, inherited from his father, Sir Alexander Durie CBE.
These Arms were matriculated in England, but bear Scots thistles on the typical Durie chevron.
