Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 05/02/2015
Registration date: 26 February 2015
Category: Military
Restrictions: Yes. Only those authorised by the Commanding Officer of HMS Neptune may wear/use/weave this tartan.

Registration notes: HMS Neptune is located in the traditional clan lands of the MacAulays and this design is closely based on that clan's Hunting tartan of 1850. The Royal Navy colours of red, white and blue predominate and the green from the ship's badge forms the three prongs of Neptune's trident - edged in black to commemorate the tragic 1941 loss of the cruiser HMS Neptune in the Mediterranean.
