Use and production of this tartan is controlled by The Society of William Wallace.

Registration notes: Created by Christine MacLeod, a handloom weaver, to commemorate one hundred years since the Wallace Memorial was erected at William Wallace's birthplace, Elderslie. Also known as the Society of William Wallace tartan and worn by members of the Society. The Society of William Wallace is a non political organisation dedicated to upholding the memory of Scotland’s great patriotic hero, Sir William Wallace. Colours: red is symbolic of sacrifice and the dominant shade of the cloth; steel grey represents the Wallace Sword, symbolic of strength, dedication and determination, and the natural shade of the granite of the Wallace memorial in Elderslie; brown from the bark of the Wallace Yew beside the memorial in Elderslie; a single line of rust in memory of the Walk for Wallace completed by David R Ross in 2005 and symbolic of the well in Elderslie; blue and grey - the core of the plaid - symbolic of the cross in the sky seen before the battle at Athelstaneford as a sign of the blessing of St Andrew, later becoming the saltire and symbol of Scotland. The tartan was first worn at the Scottish Parliament to commemorate the return of the Letter of Safe Conduct to Scotland and at the centenary of the unveiling of the memorial in Elderslie on Wallace Day. Woven by Bute Fabrics on the Isle of Bute.
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.
