Registration notes: Designed in 1930 by Arthur Bottomley a director of Peter MacArthur Ltd, specifically for the use of Prince George, the Duke of Kent, who bore the title Earl of St. Andrews. He first wore it in 1939 to a Highland Society dinner in London three years before he was killed on active duty in World War II. Although it started life as a Restricted Royal tartan it's said that Marks & Spencers mounted a sales promotion with it in a 1973 campaign and since then it has gradually become the District tartan for St Andrews and the surrounding area. No independent evidence of the M & S claim.

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.
