Strachan Tartan

Clan Strachan is in the process of releasing and/or authorising one or more "official" new Clan Strachan tartans in order to issue in a new era as we expect to have a Chief recognised by the Court of the Lord Lyon within the next couple of years.  There are six tartans that are under evaluation (see below).  The ultimate authority for a clan tartan is the Chief or Commander of that family or name in question.  However, Rob Strachan prefers we seek the guidance from our entire Clan prior to making a final decision. 

Please, evaluate all of the following tartans individually, on a scale of 0-5, with 5 being the highest. You may rank all the same if you like. Also, include a valid email address to ensure no single person votes multiple times.  Thank you for your participation, and we hope to make an announcement later this year!

Strachan Family, Modern Sett. Registered 1987 (STA 2601). Designed by Anthony Murray, and comes in a variety of setts.  The tartan was designed for Personal use, but has been unofficially adopted by many as the Strachan tartan.  This tartan was designed 25 years ago, before there was a Clan Commander/Chief, and before the Clan Strachan Society was created.  It is unknown if Mr. Murray is a Strachan by  blood in the female line, or if he designed the tartan in association with one of the tartan mills in Scotland, which appears more likely.

Clan Strachan Hunting
Not released
Designed by Jim Strachan, Dennis Strachan. This tartan was designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and carries a familiarity for those Strachan families who have traditionally used the tartan associated with the Tribe of Mar.  The small lines all carry the traditional armorial colours of Clan Strachan.
Mill of Strachan
Not registered
Designed by Rob Strachan, Jim Strachan, Dennis Strawhun. This tartan was designed with colours of the grass and fields of the Mill of Strachan in mind.   

Strachan Red
Not registered
Designed by Jim Strachan, Dennis Strawhun, Rob Strachan.  This tartan was designed for those with an affinity for the colour red.

  
Clan Strachan District
Not registered
Designed by Jim Strachan, Dennis Strawhun, Rob Strachan.  This tartan was designed to reflect the location of Strachan in the Royal Deeside. The small lines carry the traditional armorial colours of Clan Strachan, and can be used as either a Clan or District tartan. The purple is both commemorative of the Royal Deeside, as well as the colour of the heather flowers blooming in Strachan during late summer.
