Scottish Tartans World Register: Forbes 
Forbes Clan Tartan  WR211



This is the Forbes in use today. It was said to have been designed by a Miss Forbes in 1822 for the Forbes family of Pitsligo but earlier records would appear to discount this story. It appeared in Wilson's pattern book of 1819, in Grant No: 15 and in Smith No: 47. A different sett has been approved by the Clan Chief and registered with Lord Lyon. It is known as Forbes Ancient.
The source of tartan 211 was: Cockburn Collection No: 5
