Tartan Details - King George VI (Green Stewart)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "King George VI (Green Stewart)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 5845
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1930
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Royal
Registration notes: This is the authentic King George VI tartan referred to in the past by Harry Lindley of Kinloch Anderson as 'Green Stewart' to protect it from being mis-used by the world at large. Made at the King's request by Royal Warrant Holders Wm Anderson, George Street, Edinburgh, it gave him an exclusive tartan to wear which was different from Royal Stewart. Today King George's kilt is worn from time to time by HRH Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. This differs from Princess Mary in having broader white lines within the black guards. Like the Balmoral, it is expected that weavers in the United Kingdom - and hopefully, further afield - will respect the fact that this tartan is exclusively for the use of the British Royal family.

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.
