The tartan was designed in the early 1930s by Arthur Bottomly of Peter MacArthur Ltd in Hamilton. It was produced in honour of Prince George (then Earl of St Andrews), eldest son of the Duke and Duchess of Kent. Use of the tartan became widespread in the 1970s and its popularity has continued through the association with the town of St Andrews and consequent golfing links.
