Registration notes: This tartan has been created to commemorate the Christian festival of Christmas, at which the birth of Jesus Christ is celebrated. The word "Christmas" does not occur anywhere in the Bible. It is an old English word meaning "Christ's Mass" which refers to the celebration of the Lord's Supper, i.e. the Mass. The tartan is inspired by the spirit of Christmas. Colours: green represents Frankincense; red represents Myrrh and yellow represents gold, the colour of kingship. Gold, frankincense and myrrh are the gifts given to the Baby Jesus by the three Kings in the nativity story, each symbolic of Jesus' life and death.
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.
