The Clans and Tartans of Scotland by Bain
Popular for everything from school uniforms to ladies' skirts and jackets, the Lindsay tartan has a place in countless hearts. Descended from Danes, the first Lindsay recorded in Scotland was in and the family prospered both in both Scotland and England until they had to give up the English parts during the Wars of Scottish Independence. Now the family is found all over the world. But their tartan is found much more widely still! The Dress Stewart tartan is another plaid found in many a school uniform.
But its popularity is much wider than that, used in everything from high fashion to traditional interiors. Dress tartans are typically showy, designed of course for dress-up occasions.

But Dress Stewart somehow does so in a way that's classy. Dress Stewart is nowadays so widely used for commercial production that few wearers probably even reflect on its historic links with the Stewart clan. But it remains a source of pride for many Stewart family members to see their fabrics being enjoyed all over the world. The Scotland Forever tartan is a more modern invention by one of the Scottish weaving mills.
Taking its name from a famous battle cry heard at Waterloo, the Scotland Forever was created especially to meet the need for a plaid design that could be worn by anyone, wherever they lived, and whether or not they had Scottish blood. After all, which of us wouldn't agree: Scotland Forever! Tartans aren't only for families and clans. The tradition is really about honouring a community you belong to and love. So there are plaids for countries, cities, regions, and villages. There are tartans for companies, clubs, and events. Lots of universities and schools have their own.
Heck, you can even design your own tartan.

But here's the big take-away: there's no rule to stop you wearing any old clan or family tartan! That idea's a myth. Scottish tradition is all about welcoming outsiders into our community. To wear someone's plaid is a sign of respect and friendship. So it's fine to choose any traditional tartan just because you like it! Today, there are around tartans listed in the Scottish Heritage World Register - including ones for football clubs, individual towns, etc. Sometimes, when we discover that Scottish tartans are not ancient the Henderson tartan was registered in , for example , it "takes the shine off" our interest.
In this case, it really shouldn't. The wearing of the tartan and linking the patterns called setts to particular families has done so much to unite Scottish culture world-wide and to reestablish our connections with our ancestors and with our fellow "Scots of the diaspora. And there is no doubt at all that the Highlanders invented these wonderful plaids.
