Tartan Details - Lermontov

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

STA ref: 6493
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/12/2004
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Designed by Brian Wilton of the Scottish Tartans Authority for the Russian descendents of George Lermont (a 'Scotch Knight') of Fife who emigrated to Russia in 1613 to serve as a military instructor to Tsar Mikhail Romanov. The most famous Lermontov was Mikhail (b1814) - a much revered poet and 'dissident' who was killed in a duel in 1841. His standing in Russia was almost akin to that of Robert Burns. This tartan is based upon the MacDuff, the designer drawing upon George Lermont's home county of Fife and its literary connection in Shakespeare's MacBeth in which MacDuff was given the fictional title of Thane of Fife. The white lines on blue symbolise St Andrew - patron saint of both Russia and Scotland - and of course the Scottish flag - the saltire and celebrate the Lermontovs' Scottish ancestry. The remaining colours are from the Lermontov coat of arms registered in Russia in 1798. The three black lines represent the three lozenges in that device.

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.
