The Royal Navy Tartan

‘For those in Peril on the Sea’ The design of the Royal Navy tartan encompasses those colours historically associated with the Senior Service: red, white and blue for the various ensigns, royal purple for its title, and all in a setting of navy blue: the sea, the endless sea. As such it is intended to provide a common bond between ‘sailors’ regardless of rank, and an identity for informal occasions, and even everyday wear.
