Members of the Tachibana family often held high court posts within the Daij -kan (Ministry of State), most frequently Sadaijin (Minister of the Left). Like the other major families at court, they also constantly sought to increase and secure their power by marrying into the imperial family. However, as the Fujiwara clan gained power over the course of the 9th and 10th centuries, the Tachibana were eclipsed and eventually became scattered across the country. They bore no direct relation to the samurai Tachibana clan from the 14th century, who traces their lineage to the Fujiwara clan. The name of Tachibana was bestowed on Agata-no-Inukai no Michiyo by Empress Gemmei in 708. She was the wife of Prince Minu, a descendant of Emperor Bidatsu and mothered Princes Katsuragi and Sai. She later married Fujiwara no Fuhito and bore K my shi (Empress K my ).

The Macaulays of Lewis, or more specifically the Macaulays of Uig, were a small clan located around around Uig on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. There is no connection between the Macaulays of Lewis and Clan MacAulay which was centred in the Loch Lomond area, bordering the Scottish Highlands and Scottish Lowlands. The Macaulays of Lewis are generally said to be of Norse origin because of the etymology of their surname and also because of the islands' Viking Age past. In the 17th century, however, tradition gave the Macaulays an Irish origin. By the end of the 16th century the dominant clan on Lewis was Clan Macleod of The Lewes. Other notable Lewis clans were the somewhat smaller Morrisons of Ness and the even less numerous Macaulays of Uig. The Macaulays were centred in the area surrounding Uig on the western coast of Lewis, and had a deadly, long-standing feud with the Morrisons, whose lands were located on the northern coast around Ness. Today the Lewis surname Macaulay is considered to be a sept name of the Macleods of Lewis

The Sade clan is a Somali clan that includes the Marehan and the Facaayo or Facaye. They live in Gedo and Ogaden or Western Somalia also in the North Eastern Province (Northern Frontier District or NFD) in Kenya. The Marehan extended families are, like most Somalis, pastoral nomads and also one of the most respected clan families of the Darod clan. Marehan in the Jubba Valley are farmers who practise qodaal masno (in Af Soomaali) or integrated farming, which combines livestock and produce farming. This farming method is rare in many Somali farmers. In the last sixty years or so, many Marehan populated cities in the Gedo and Galguduud regions of central Somalia have become urbanized. From early ages to late 19th century, Marehan were the respected chiefs in parts of northern and central Somalia such as the region now called Nugaal.

The Oda clan ( , Oda-shi) was a family of Japanese daimyo who were to become an important political force in the unification of Japan in the mid-16th century. Though they had the climax of their fame under Oda Nobunaga and fell from the spotlight soon after, several branches of the family would continue on as daimyo houses until the Meiji Restoration. The Oda family in the time of Nobunaga claimed descent from the Taira clan, by Taira no Chikazane, a grandson of Taira no Shigemori (1138-1179). Taira no Chikazane established himself at Oda (Echizen Province) and took its name. His descendants, great vassals of the (Seiwa Genji) Shiba clan, shugo (governors) of Echizen, Owari and other provinces, followed the latter to Owari Province and received Inuyama Castle in 1435. This castle was built towards 1435, by Shiba Yoshitake who entrusted its safety to the Oda family. The Oda had been shugo-dai (vice-governor) for several generations.
Nearly 25 years of lack of functional state, Somalia maintained both multilateral and localized business connection and protection. The chief source of protection squarely laid on the power of clan, in that in the Somalis context, everyone is under the surveillance of clan, and serving clan interest is a matter of need not privilege. What is more, much of the business in Somalia survived in terms of continuity through cultural allegiance, a classical example is the informal money transfer or money remittance into the country. Each major clan of Somalia has a traditional money remittance institution in which customer attraction is mainly on the basis of clan identity. This book demonstrates a handy example on how culture and clan loyalty works in Somalia business.

A clan badge, sometimes called a plant badge, is a badge or emblem, usually a sprig of a specific plant, that is used to identify a member of a particular Scottish clan. They are usually worn in a bonnet behind the Scottish crest badge, or attached at the shoulder of a lady's tartan sash. According to popular lore clan badges were used by Scottish clans as a means of identification in battle. An authentic example of plants being used in this way were the sprigs of oats used by troops under the command of Montrose during the sack of Aberdeen. Similar items are known to have been used by military forces in Scotland, like paper, or the "White Cockade" of the Jacobites.
