Tartan Details - Cornish Hunting

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Cornish Hunting" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1568
STWR ref: 1568
Designer: Redwood, Sandra A
Tartan date: 01/01/1983
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: This was produced in 1984 as a subdued alternative to the rather bright Cornish National Tartan (designed by E.E. Morton-Nance). This hunting design was a collaboration between the Redwoods and Charnocks. It was marketed by Cornovi Creations of Cornwall. It is based on the Cornish National tartan whose designer apparently (and correctly) regarded tartan as the heritage of all Celts, not Scots alone. The Hunting Tartan incorporates all the colours of the original National Tartan but with a dark green background. It is also said that Royal Blue and Gold were the colours of the Cornish Wrestlers.

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.
