Scottish Tartans World Register: MacQueen 
MacQueen Clan Tartan  WR1209



The tartan of the Clan Revan, so called after Revan MacMulmor MacAngus MacQueen, who led kinsmen of the MacDonald bride for the 10th Chief of the Mackintoshes, to take protection from Clan Chattan. The sett was unnamed, as far as we know, before publication in the Vestiarium Scoticum (1842), but this source is unreliable. It has much in common with the Fraser and the Gunn tartans, both of which have four bold stripes, but the origin is more likely to have come from a combination of the MacDonald and the Mackintosh.
The source of tartan 1209 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
