Commemorating 700 years since the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, this beautiful scarf is thoughtfully woven with a palette of meaningful colours that create a stunning tartan.
- The light tan with the narrow black stripes represents the document
- Green and Red represents the seals and signatories
- The white pivot represents the recipient of the letter Pope John XXII
- The scarlet pivot represents the Scots of old who died fighting for freedom
- The broad black stripe becomes a memorial of remembrance for those who fell on the Scottish battlefields.
"As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself".
The Declaration is a letter written in 1320 by the barons and whole community of the kingdom of Scotland to the pope, asking him to recognise Scotland's independence and acknowledge Robert the Bruce as the country's lawful king.
