|Clemson Kennel Club|
Clemson Kennel Club founding member Suzanne Culbertson created our Coat of Arms as our original symbol. It was designed to stand out among the mostly badge-style logos of other kennel clubs, and to convey an impression of antiquity. This has served us well over the years, becoming recognized on the dog show circuit.
The Clemson Kennel Club Coat of Arms is a shield of OR (gold*) with an Ermine Chevron (ermine pattern made of dot-paw designs). An Azure (blue*) dog Couchant (lying down) is the center base (representing Obedience) and seven rosettes Chief are across the top (representing the seven Conformation groups). The shield is supported by two dogs Rampant (standing on rear legs). The helmet is surmounted by a Crown, bearing the “CKC” legend on the crest and flanked by mantling Gules (red). The Motto on the scroll Gules (red*), reads “Les Chiens: Toujours Loyaux” (Dogs: always loyal).
*gold, crown, ermine and supporters symbolize royalty: blue symbolizes loyalty: and red symbolizes courage.
As we become more active in our community and on social media, we are exploring the benefits of adding a more community-facing logo to our brand. The above is a mock-up for one possibility. It combines elements of a playful Wire Fox Terrier, like the Westminster-winner Sky bred by our club member Al Pertuit, a map of Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens Counties, and our name in a blue brush script such as we have often used on signage, and on our equipment trailer.
