Tartan Details - Benteau na mara

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

STA ref: 7676
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: Designed to celebrate 15 generations of the Benteau family on the occasion of Frances Benteau's 85th birthday. As a young boy, Michael (surname unknown) arrived during a storm in St. Pierre et Miquelon aboard a fishing boat from Bordeaux, France. In 1843, his son Peter was born in Newfoundland and became the first Benteau of the New World. Many of his descendants made their way to Nova Scotia and beyond but, 165 years later, the Benteaus continue to live and thrive in their homes by the sea. Colours: the melding of the blues and green evoke the everchanging colours of the landscape -the forests, the sky and always, the sea; the red is for the Canadian Maple Leaf; the light blue for the French Fleur de Lis and the golden sun radiates throughout.
Information notes: STA hold woven sample.

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.
