Tartan Details - Stewart/Stuart, Royal

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Stewart/Stuart, Royal" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1375
STWR ref: 1375
Designer: Wilsons of Bannockburn
Tartan date: 01/01/1819
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Fashion
Restrictions:
Registration notes: A plaid from the Hepburn Collection. Said to be very faded. This is a very large sett and has been divided by four to show here which explains the odd-numbered thread counts. The blue bordering the red bocks is often shown as azure. The best known of all Scottish tartans, the Royal Stewart is the tartan of the Royal House of Stewart and the personal tartan of the reigning monarch. Theoretically it cannot be used or worn without the express permission of HM The Queen. In pratice however, this is the most popular tartan ever woven and can be seen on a huge range of products. The genie is well and truly out of the bottle so the theory rather evaporates.

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.
