Registration notes: From a story about the early days of the Black Watch, in 1739, we know that there was no Crawford tartan at that time. The first record is in the Vestiarium Scoticum of 1842. It would appear that the tartan was designed sometime between these dates possibly by the Sobieski Stuart brothers. The Vestiarium Scoticum describes the green next to the crimson line as being the colour of a 'tender ash tree, with the rest of the green being 'grass-green' Also appears in the 1880 Clans Originaux. The Vestiarium Scoticum red is bright red.
