Tartan Details - Princess Mary #2

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Princess Mary #2" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 5449
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: It was popular in the 1920s to name fashion tartans after members of the Royal Family of the day and one explanation says that the Princess Mary comes into this category. Originally described in 1930 as the Green Stuart, it - and colour variations - has been marketed since that date as the Princess Mary. #735 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) from West Coast Woolen Mills of Vancouver is a corrupted version of this.

An alternative note from Hary Linldey says: 'In the early 1930s a few of the Royal Family wished to wear a tartan other than the Royal, Dress or Hunting Stewart. This tartan was designed and became known as Princess Mary Tartan. The same applies to Princess Beatrice.'

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.
