Tartan Details - McCandlish Arisaid Red

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

STA ref: 3326
STWR ref: none
Designer: McCandlish, Stanton W F
Tartan date: 01/01/1992
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: The McCandlish suite of tartans was designed in 1992 by Stanton Ward Foster McCandlish in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, with advice from J. Charles "Scotty" Thompson FSTS. A family tartan, loosely based on the Black Watch tartan with an influence from the Gordon tartan. The yellow stripe in the tartan represents the ‘bright line’ events that forked the family into McCandlish and McCandless lines, namely the Jacobite Risings, and our history as a Borders family. Yellow was also selected, as well as red in the original version of the tartan, from the colours of the earliest known McCandlish blazon. The blue represents the sea, as the vast majority of McCandlishes, McCandlesses and related are among the Gaelic diaspora, especially in North America and Australia & New Zealand. The increasing width of the black "tram track" stripes represents the continuing worldwide growth of the name from a once very small family.

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.
