Many of the people of Mabou have ancestors who originated from Scotland through the clearances. Maud's description for the tartan was "Blue is for the beautiful sky and peaceful waters, green is for the trees so splendid, brown is for the fertile soil, yellow is for the glorious sun, and grey is for the mist over Cape Mabou". The tartan was officially recognised as the tartan of the area by Bonny MacIsaac, Warden of the Municipality of the County of Inverness in 2023.
