(Redirected to Slogan article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A slogan is a memorable motto or phrase used in a political, commercial, religious and other context as a repetitive expression of an idea or purpose. The word slogan is derived from slogorn which was an Anglicisation of the Scottish and Irish Gaelic sluagh-ghairm (sluagh "army", "host" + gairm "cry").[1] Slogans vary from the written and the visual to the chanted and the vulgar. Often their simple rhetorical nature leaves little room for detail, and as such they serve perhaps more as a social expression of unified purpose, rather than a projection for an intended audience.

Slogans in heraldry

Slogans are used in heraldry, specifically in Scottish heraldry, in the same way as a motto is used. While mottoes may have several different origins, slogans are considered to originate as, or represent, war cries or battle cries. They usually appear above the crest on a coat of arms.
