    A Personal Modification of Guthrie Tartan

    Hi all. I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this, but here goes. I was playing around with one of the online tartan design sites and came up with this. It's a spin on the Guthrie tartan. I simply switched the black and red. The sett was not changed. I call it Carolina Guthrie. The blue is Carolina Blue and the green is supposed to match the longleaf pine. It was done strictly as a fun exercise. Here it is next to Guthrie in ancient colors for comparison. Any thoughts?

    Your variation looks good - nice and simple. Colors are not outlandish and blend well.

    Perhaps your Clan Chief might have an opinion on the adjustment?

    The clan Guthrie tartan is based off of the County Angus tartan where our Guthrie ancestor's were based. It might be a better idea to utilize that very similar tartan as the basis of your variation, so there is no messiness with the clan as Jock intimated might occur.

    Cheers from a fellow Guthrie.

    I wouldn't think there would be controversy... weavers weave tartans in differing colour-schemes all the time.

    Look at Royal Stewart! It's woven with the background in red, dark blue, light blue, grey, tan, black, white.

    And not just that tartan, a number of tartans are in production in various colour-schemes.

    What I don't know is if changing one or more colours is considered to be creating a new tartan, or a different version of the same tartan.

    The original Guthrie Tartan is listed on the Scottish Register of Tartan as no. 1562 and dated to 1996.
    The Register has this to say about it -
    "Designed by Jack.R.Dalgety of Forfar for Ivan D. Guthrie of Guthrie. This started life as a personal tartan but became accepted as one for all the name (Phyllis Muir, Alex Dalgety of Forfar - 16/10/02). From Ingles Buchan. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Dalgety Collection. Jack also wrote a book on the Guthrie family."

    Personally I would check with the current representative, Alexander Guthrie of Guthrie, before changing it.

    Yes, I have the aforementioned, very limited release book on the history of the Guthrie Clan. In it is described fully the lengthy process Guthrie of Guthrie went through in helping design his personal tartan, that would later become the clan tartan.

    As I mentioned, it is very similar to the Angus District tartan when all is said and done, and the latter might be a good starting point for a modified tartan, but without the sticky ownership issues.
