Tartan Details - Grant (Official)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Grant (Official)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1384
STWR ref: 1384
Designer: Unknown
Tartan date: 01/01/1819
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: The usual Grant tartan has also been worn by Drummonds as a clan tartan for nearly 200 years. The setting of this tartan evolved from the 'New Bruce' pattern, an 'Old Superfine' tartan documented in the 1819 Key Pattern Book of William Wilson and Sons of Bannockburn. Threadcount recorded by Alan G Grant in the Public Register of all Arms and Bearings in Scotland, 35/74v, 20 November 1946. Lord Strathspey, the Chief of the Clan Grant, has verified that his preferred tartan for the Clan Grant is that illustrated as Plate XIX in 'The Tartans of the Clans of Scotland' (Edinburgh, 1886) by James Grant.

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.
