Tartan Details - Galloway Green (yellow line)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Galloway Green (yellow line)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1469
STWR ref: 1469
Designer: Hannay, John
Tartan date: 01/01/1950
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Designed in the 1950s by Councillor John Hannay of the Hannah Clan Society. They are sometimes found with the light narrow stripe woven in white (see #1467, original Scottish Tartans Authority reference), but this original had pale primrose. Scottish Tartans Society notes: In contemporary correspondence Mr Hannay said that the Galloway 'everyday' tartan was 'in four shades of green with yellow and red stripe'. Cree Mills of Newton-Stewart, however, used only two shades in the manufacture on Mr Hannay's behalf. MacGregor Hastie's collection includes this sett with the pale yellow rendered in white and called Galloway Hunting.

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.
