Tartan Details - Aubigny

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

STA ref: 2159
STWR ref: 2159
Designer: House of Edgar - Macnaughton Holdings Ltd.
Tartan date: 01/01/1992
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Designed by Polly Wittering of House of Edgar for the French town of Aubigny-sur-Nere. Also recorded as Alliance France-Eccose, with a slightly different threadcount. The Alliance is said to be a French/Scottish Society located in La Maison des Associations (SIEGE), Orleans, France. Aubigny-sur-Nere is a short distance southeast of Orleans so these may be the same tartan but with some confusion as to the official title. Created using the Stewart of Atholl tartan and the colours of the Aubigny sur Nere town crest. The Stewart of Atholl tartan was used as the basis for this design because of the 16th century Chateau d'Aubigny-sur-Nere which was built by the Stewarts. The name arises from the Auld Alliance, a cultural and diplomatic treaty between Scotland and France, which was at its strongest during conflicts with England, the common enemy.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
