The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Lang" tartan is shown below.

Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1840
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Other
Registration notes: Scottish Tartans Society notes: Portion of plaid c 1840-70 in Scottish Tartans Society collection. Lang gift (Scottish Tartans Society reference 38/1) . 64 inches by 65 inches. This thread count has been reduced when compared to the sample for display purposes. 'The International Tartan Index thread count is estimated from a computer screen graphic so should not be taken as 100% accurate. Clan Laing Society website notes are as follows: 'In 1983 Malcolm J. Lang donated a tartan that had been woven some time between 1840 and 1855 to the Scottish Tartan Society. The sett of this tartan and that of the Laing tartan recovered from the grave of George Laing were so strikingly similar that it was assumed for a brief period that they both could have been created by the same weaver. Using the sett of the donated tartan and that recovered from the grave of George Laing, the original basic sett from which both tartans were derived could be determined with a considerable degree of confidence. Although adapted for a half sett this too is an authentic Laing family tartan.' See also #6096 and #2544 (original Scottish Tartans Authority references).

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.
