Registration notes: According to 'World Tartans' the decision to adopt a tartan was taken by a Welsh society formed in Cardiff in 1967. Its aim was to emphasise the Welsh bonds with other Celtic countries, most of whom appeared to already have their own tartan. Colours represent the Welsh flag - red dragon on a green and white background. Nomindex notes 'Made for Frasers of Perth. Specimen from D.M. Richards 1967. D.C. Dalgliesh specimen 1968. Colours named as crimson and sage green.' Lochcarron swatch.

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.
