Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1880
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family

Registration notes: From the 1880 Clans Originaux. This appears to be the version used by modern weavers. The original Johnstons sett used black for the two wide tramlines on white instead of blue as shown here which is the choice of today's weavers. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Dalgety Collection. D.C. Dalgliesh has this in the Dancers' Book but the black on the white shown here has been changed to blue.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.

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.
