What is the Lucan Crest?
The Lucan crest was of two chained wolves on their hind legs guarding a shield and a coronet. The family motto
is 'Spes Mea Christus', 'In Christ lies my hope'.
Some believe that the wolves - snarling, with mouths open and tongues lolling out - uncannily reflect the
notorious temper of several of the Earls Lucan.
