Tartan date: 01/12/2008
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Registration notes: Gerald Reilly's rationale was: "During my lifetime in the weaving trade, it was always my intention to design a tartan, which would combine the history associated with the Knighting of William Wallace (Guardian of Scotland) by Robert the Bruce at Selkirk's Kirk o'the Forest. The colours are a combination of the Royal and Ancient Burgh of Selkirk, the Clan Wallace and the Bruce tartan with the St Andrew's saltire in the background."
Information notes: To view woven sample, please request NAS6/O6/Oversize.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.

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.
