To mark the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, a special commemorative tartan has been designed and produced by Gordon Nicolson of Nicolson Kilt Makers in Edinburgh.

The design features colours which evoke the battle, and those who fought in it and is designed to evoke the reflective tone of the commemoration, and the natural colours of the battlefield itself.

There is the Tudor Green and White of the English Army and the Golden Yellow and Dark Red of the Scottish Army. Becki Cooper of Flodden 1513 is pictured above modelling the new Flodden Tartan.
