The LXXXIVth, or ROYAL HIGHLAND EMIGRANTS
Although this unit became the 84th Regiment of Foot,
numbered colours appear not to have been issued and this original
set carried throughout the regiment's service. The central device
features a thistle on a red ground surrounded by a green circle
bearing the motto NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT.
The scroll bearing the regimental title is gold.
The Regimental Colour was blue with the same central
device and the Royal cypher in each corner slanting inwards. 1
