More information:

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is the council for the local government area of Na h-Eileanan Siar, the Western Isles or Outer Hebrides, in Scotland. Its original name of Western Isles Council was replaced in 1997 meaning that it is the only council to only have a name in Gaelic - even when used in an English context. The headquarters of the council are in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. The arms above the entrance are blazoned as: Or, on a fess wavy Azure between three lymphads, oars in action, sails furled Sable, flagged Gules, two barrulets wavy Argent. Above the Shield is a coronet, videlicet:- a circlet richly chased, from which are issuant four dolphins two and two respectant naiant embowed (two visible) Or; and on a Compartment below the Shield, with this Motto "Ardaichidh Fireantachd Cinneach", are set for Supporters, dexter, a golden eagle Proper, and sinister, a unicorn Argent, armed, maned and unguled Or, and gorged with a collar Gules, from which is pendant an oval badge Azure, fimbriated Or, charged with a saltire Argent; and for Badge a lymphad, sail furled, oars in action, surmounting a circlet Sable.
