PROUD SON OF EDINBURGH TARTAN DETAILS
Designer: Stirrat, Lesley J & Longmuir, Eileen
Tartan date: 01/09/2018
Registration date: 26 November 2018
Restrictions: Yes. For the exclusive use of the designers, the Longmuir family and descendants.

Registration notes: Designed as the official tartan to honour Alan Longmuir, an original and founding member of the Bay City Rollers. Alan was a proud son of Edinburgh and a true gentleman who brought happiness to so many. The colours were chosen for their sentiment: green for the Ochil Hills; purple for the heather; dark blue symbolises the Bannock Burn; blue was a favourite of Alan’s and light red representing pink, a favourite of both designers: his wife Eileen and friend Lesley. The designers wish to acknowledge the generous support from John Hepburn, a friend who shared the vision of honouring Alan with this tartan.
Note: This tartan was registered in the official Scottish Register of Tartans.
