Registration notes: The tartan commemorates the most treasured document in Scotland's history - the 'Declaration of Arbroath' dated 6th April 1320 - a letter from the Scottish Earls and Barons in support of King Robert the Bruce and his battle for Scottish independence. The tartan is designed to visually portray both the Royal Standard of Scotland (the Lion Rampant) - and - the National Flag of Scotland (the Saltire). When printed or worn on the square the red and yellow represents the Lion Rampant, and when printed or worn on the bias the white and blue - the white cross - visually becomes the Scottish Saltire, known also as St. Andrew’s Cross. In the tartan thirteen red threads and twenty yellow threads represent the year 1320, the year the Declaration of Arbroath was sealed. Visit the registrant's website for the full rationale and numeracy within the tartan:
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.
