Tartan Details - Bressuire

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

Reference: 10260
Designer: Anderson, Gavin
Tartan date: 01/03/2010
Registration date: 4 August 2010
Category: District
Restrictions: Yes. Anyone can wear the tartan but corporate use is reserved to the Highland Games Association, AJEF.

Registration notes: Bressuire is a small town midway between Nantes and Poitiers in the mid west of France. It is twinned with Fraserburgh in Scotland and has developed a strong Scottish identity. It hosts, arguably, the best Highland Games in Europe in addition to numerous annual Scottish events such as Burns, nights and whisky tastings. The white stripe on blue represents the Fraserburgh/Scotland link, the deep wine-red is for the Anjou region just north of the town which was the ancestral home of the Stewart Kings and which produces excellent red wines to this day. The green represents the farming country all around and the gold stripe the golden granite beneath from which many buildings are constructed.
Information notes: Woven sample provided for Register by Lochcarron, 2011.
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.
Registrant details: Mr Gavin Anderson, 14 Le Rouerthais, Breuil Chaussée, Deux Sevres, France, 79300
