Scottish Tartans World Register: Royal Stewart 
Royal Stewart Royal Family Tartan  WR1370



The best known of all Scottish tartans, the Royal Stewart is the tartan of the Royal House of Stewart and the personal tartan of Her Majesty the Queen. In the same way that clansmen wear the tartan of their chief, it is appropriate for all subjects of the Queen to wear the Royal Stewart tartan. The pattern was first published by James Logan in his book, 'The Scottish Gael' in 1831, but references indicate that the sett was known at the end of the 18th century. Early samples show blue as a light 'azure'.
The source of tartan 1370 was: Logan
