According to 'World Tartans' the decision to adopt a tartan was taken by a Welsh society formed in Cardiff in 1967. Its aim was to emphasise the Welsh bonds with other Celtic countries, most of whom appeared to already have their own tartan. Colours represent the Welsh flag - red dragon on a green and white background. Nomindex notes 'Made for Frasers of Perth. Specimen from D.M. Richards 1967. D.C. Dalgliesh specimen 1968.
