Tartan Details - Earl of Forfar, The

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Earl of Forfar, The" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 12595
Designer: Brown, Jonathan Strathmore Woollen Co Ltd
Tartan date: 01/07/2019
Registration date: 23 August 2019
Category: Royal

Written authority to weave this tartan must be sought from from Strathmore Woollen Co Ltd.

Registration notes: On the 55th Birthday of Prince Edward, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II bestowed upon him the title of The Earl of Forfar, a title which dates back to 1661. To mark his inaugural visit to the town the Strathmore Woollen Co Ltd were commissioned to create a Tartan to celebrate The Earl’s first official visit. The weave is based on the existing ‘Forfar’ tartan, created by the Strathmore Woollen Company in 2004 – the colours of that weave being based on the Forfar Coat of Arms. It was felt important that the new Tartan should share some of the characteristics of the existing design with the geometry undergoing only minor refinements.
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.
Registrant details: Mr Jonathan Brown, Station Works North Street, Forfar, Angus, Scotland, DD8 3BN
