A message from Lord Lyon, Dr Joseph J Morrow. "Greetings from Edinburgh on this spring day albeit that we are affected by the pandemic which isplaying such a critical role in all our lives worldwide. On 6 April 2020 we are celebrating the 700thAnniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath. This document was signed at Arbroath Abbey which isjust a few miles from my home and the ruins of which I have walked round on many occasions.The Declaration is one of the most significant documents that emerged from Mediaeval Europe. It isa document that is marked by learning and scholarship and for the 14th century provides anargument for the self determination of the Scottish people. It changed constitutional thinking – suchthat our King was required to rule in the best interests of his people who, through the Declaration,kept a right to Depose the king.This fundamental principle in constitutional law of the power of the people remains even to todayand applies in all democratic states to Monarch and State Leader alike.Throughout the centuries this principle was drawn on by many including the Committee who draftedthe American Declaration of Independence. Today we all celebrate the living Scotland whether hereat home or abroad and acknowledge the influence this Declaration has had and further celebrateour Scottish heritage. One simple fact that highlights the influence of the living Scotland is shown inthe celebration of Scotland in the life of Canada and the number of prominent people who were ofScottish descent who influenced the growth of CanadaHappy 700th Anniversary celebrations of the Declaration of Arbroath."-----------------Happy Tartan Day Johnston/es. We hope you're wearing your colors today.Aye Ready. ...
