Registration notes: There seems to be some confusion as to who designed this tartan. One claim states: 'A promotional tartan for the Stirling Millennium year arranged by Stewart Russell a researcher at Stirling Council. The tartan was designed by Annie Stewart of 'Anta Scotland'. The colours are to represent the naturally growing flowers of the area.' another states: 'To create the contemporary Stirling tartan designer Stewart Russell set about photographing indigenous plants and flowers in the Stirling area. Inspiration came from plants at the foot of the Wallace Monument including thistles, fox gloves, wild nettles and heather. The photos were then scanned into a computer and digitalised to create patterns and individual colour palettes. This visual information was then applied to a computer programme written specifically for designing tartan. Two sets of images were produced - some symmetrical and some asymmetrical. The asymmetrical patterns were based on original designs found in the Wilson's 'KPB' of 1819.'

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.
