The Flodden Tartan was designed by Gordon Nicolson in 2013 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, where King James IV led the Scots against the armies of King Henry VIII and became the last reigning British Monarch to die in battle. This cloth commemorates those who fought, those who died on both Scottish and English sides of the battle in 1513, as well as acknowledging the far-reaching effects of the battle for the generations who followed.
The colours woven here will forever lock together the two sides involved in the battle which took the lives of so many and devastated the lives of so many more for generations;
Red & Gold - represent the Lion Rampant of Scotland, Green & White - represent the English Tudor colours, Grey & Brown - represent the ground they fought for and where those defeated still lie.
Flodden Commemorative tartan is woven by Lochcarron of Scotland.
