Clergy Tartan

About the Clergy Tartan

The Clergy tartan has been described as the only occupational tartan and is the tartan worn by clerics and is sometimes called "Priest". It has a few variations, including a blue and a green version, but all true to the rule that Highland clergy should wear Highland clothing but no bright colours.

There is a link to the Clark family tartan and in Latin both "clergy" and "clark" have the same root - clericus. For this reason the Clark family have used the Clergy tartan, however today the Clark is usually a brighter version of the more muted tones of the Clergy tartan.
