Scottish Tartans World Register: Angus 
Angus District Tartan  WR1179



It is not clear whether Angus tartan was intended as a District or a Family tartan and as a consequence it has been used as both. It is now firmly established as a tartan for all those people having a connection with the area. The name means 'The Only One', possibly referring to the Angus King of Dalriada in western Scotland in the ninth century. The name is associated with Clan MacInnes, who also claim descent from the Dalriada Scots. The Earldom of Angus was held by the Stewarts and Douglases.
The source of tartan 1179 was: W & A K Johnston.
