Tartan Details - Manx Hunting

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

STA ref: 149
STWR ref: 149
Designer: Kelly/Teall
Tartan date: 01/01/1980
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Produced after agreement between Mr C Ewan Kelly who marketed the Manx National tartan and Dr Gordon Teall. The former had a preliminary sketch which Teall developed in consultation with Loccarron of Galashiels who first wove it. Count taken from a plaid owned by Dr Teall. The following is an accompanying poem. Dark grey - the rocks; the heart of Ellan Vannin. Grey green - her rugged valleys, hills and moors; Clear blue - the sky above the land of Mannin; Grey blue - the sea around her shining shores; Bright gold - the gleam of cushag flowers a-blowing; Pure white - the mist that lingers for a whole. These woven on the Loom of Love are showing, the soft lived fabric of Manannan's Isle. Blue is quite the wrong shade.

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.
