Tartan Details - Al-Maktoum

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

STA ref: 1531
STWR ref: 1531
Designer: Stallard, Major
Tartan date: 01/01/1977
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Military
Registration notes: The original Al-Maktoum Tartan was based upon the Cameron Tartan and designed in 1977 by the late Major Stallard for the late HH Shaikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai. It was initially for the use of the Dubai Pipe Band and the tartan became one of the international symbols of Al-Maktoum. It later fell into disuse for a number of years before being rediscovered in 2002 by the Dundee based Al-Maktoum Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies and it was officially used by the Al-Maktoum Foundation in 2006. Now woven by the Strathmore Woollen Company of Forfar.

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.
