Registration notes: Count taken from a tartan banner at the Smith Museum, Stirling, 2 x 25' wide. The accompanying labels read 'ordered 1824 for the centenary possession of John Allan's mortification order then six yards of tartan be purchased, of the King George the 4th pattern, and cut through the middle, and sewed together, making a square of two breadths and three yards long, for their Banner upon this occasion'. This banner was probably for the Stirling Incorporation of Weavers (NOMINDEX). Sindex suggests it was ' . . possibly made for the Royal visit of King George IV in 1822.'

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.
