|Scottish Tartans World Register: Lindsay
|Lindsay Clan Tartan WR704
|The Lindsay tartan is often first recognised by its colour,
which is unusual as the precise shade of tartan colours is
normally left to the discretion of the weaver. The sett is
similar to Stewart of Athol, but for the black, rendered in
Lindsay as dark blue. The name Lindsay first appeared in
the Borders of Scotland in the 12th century. Border Clan
tartans were not generally named until the publication of
the romantic fiction known as the Vestiarium Scoticum.
|The source of tartan 704 was: Vestiarium Scoticum No 50.
