Jacobite Tartan

This tartan was known in 1712 and, like the Caledonia tartan, may have been used as a Jacobite symbol during the controversy preceding the Union of the Parliaments in 1707. The Jacobite ladies of Edinburgh are said to have worn silk plaids of this tartan as an outward sign of their anti-union feelings. Its striking colours and arrangement of the pattern support claims for its antiquity. It is now used as an alternative to the Caledonia as suitable wear for Scots who do not possess a tartan of their own.

Not for the shy and retiring this tartan is a mix of canary yellow, bottle green and a dark scarlet red.
