Scottish Tartans World Register: Shaw 
Shaw Clan Tartan  WR768



The Lyon recognition of a more recent design is "..specifically without prejudice to the continued use of the hitherto accepted Shaw tartan." This sett was published by McIan (c.1845) in a drawing of Fearcher Shaw of the Black Watch, who was executed for mutiny in 1743. Co-author, James Logan, describes the figure as wearing the 'regimental' tartan with a red line to distinguish the philabeg from the belted plaid. The Shaw tartan, it appears, had been derived from errors in the graphic illustration of the Black Watch.
The source of tartan 768 was: McIan
