DRESS GORDON WOOL TARTAN
The Gordon Dress Modern tartan is predominantly green and navy blue with a broad white stripe and narrow yellow stripe. The name Gordon is territorial and the family who took the name are believed to have been of Anglo-Norman descent, first recorded in Berwickshire in the 12th century. The Gordon Clan then moved from the Borders to Aberdeenshire and the home of the Gordon Clan Chief is Aboyne Castle in Aberdeenshire. The wild boar’s head appears on the Gordon arms because, legend says, the first Gordon saved a Scottish king from an attacking boar.
