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.

From LoveToKnow 1911

SLOGAN, the war-cry of the Highland clans. It was the gathering call of the clan, often the name of the clan, the place of meeting, and the like, and was uttered when charging in battle. The Gaelic word, of which " slogan " is the English adaptation, is sluagh-ghairm, from sluagh, army, host, and gairm, call, cry. A variant form of " slogan " is " slogorne," which has given rise to an invented word " slughorn," used by Chatterton (Battle of Hastings, ii. io) and by Browning (Childe Roland) as if the term meant some kind of war-trumpet or horn. Skeat (Etym. Diet. 1898, Errata and Addenda) has shown that Chatterton used an edition of Gavin Douglas's translation of Virgil, where" slogorne " is spelled " slughorne," and the context, " The deaucht trumpet blawis the brag of were; the slughorne, enseule or the wache cry went for the battall all suld be reddy," misled him.
