Designed and registered in 1997 with input and recommendations from community groups across the region. The red is taken from the tartan of the Clan Macduff, traditionally the head of the Scottish army, and charged with crowning the Kings of Scotland. Their association with Fife dates back to the 11th. Century. The blue represents the boundaries of the North Sea and the Firths of Tay and Forth, and pale blue, the then, two pairs of world-famous bridges which link Fife to the north and south. Gold represents Fife’s royal heritage, and black, like so many of the lowlands, for the coal which until recent times formed the backbone of its economy. For the use of anyone from or associated with the County of Fife.
Fife is a registered Tartan
