Registration notes: A tartan for the Westwaters, an Edinburgh family that probably originated in west Fife. The design is inspired by the dramatic skies and waters of Fife and Edinburgh, with the golden line representing the family's creativity and kinship through history and around the globe. Colours: black was chosen as a versatile and restrained background colour; balmoral blue is an evocative and harmonious colour that works well with black and conjures up the image of oceans and skies; canary yellow was chosen as a bright highlight to counterpoint and complement the other colours. The arrangement of the fine yellow lines symbolises latitude and longitude, and the threads of family history. Created using the online tartan design software at
