Colours: a dark overall appearance was requested, incorporating black (one of the colours in the coat of arms of the canton Basel-Stadt) together with dark green; white (also a colour of Basel-Stadt) and red are the colours of Switzerland; the blue stands for the close connections with Scotland and the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

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.
