Tartan Details - RAF Kinloss

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "RAF Kinloss" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10120
Designer: Sarah Lees of Johnstons of Elgin
Tartan date: 01/04/2009
Registration date: 11 December 2009
Category: Military
Restrictions: Yes. The RAF Kinloss Tartan may only be worn by personnel associated with RAF Kinloss, specifically military, civilian and contractors’ staff directly employed by units or companies on the station. In addition, local organisations with ties to RAF Kinloss such as the Kinloss Rugby Club and Kinloss Scouting and Guiding organisations may use the tartan with the approval of the Station Commander.

Registration notes: The RAF Kinloss tartan was designed by Sarah Lees of Johnstons of Elgin in consultation with personnel from RAF Kinloss, to mark the 70th anniversary of the station. The base colour blends the traditional RAF Blue and Grey to provide a more subtle ancient foundation, representing the proud heritage of the station. The current flying squadrons are depicted by the blue, yellow and green overchecks for 42 (Reserve) Squadron, 120 Squadron and 201 Squadron respectively. A bold RAF red marks the ultimate sacrifice made by those from RAF Kinloss through the many conflicts during the Station’s 70 years. The interwoven nature of the tartan reflects the comradeship and community that the station has enjoyed in Morayshire since it was established.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
