Tartan date: 01/01/1998
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Registration notes: Designed by Viv Sharpe and Peter MacDonald. The chosen colours are powerful symbols of the contribution made by the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy to the protection of the United Kingdom. The black overcheck recognises the very many who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country. The thread count as given to the Legion in 1997 by Viv Sharpe was as this entry except that G40 was G50 in one half of the sett. Someone has decided that both should be G40. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Johnston Collection.

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.
