Clan Cleland Tartans



In 1989 John Clelland Hocknull in Australia made it known that he was the founder of the Clan Cleland Society which wished to have a Cleland Society tartan designed. The tartan is based on the Douglas sett (for whom the Clelands were traditionally foresters) and is woven by D C Dalgliesh of Selkirk. The blue of the official tartan is derived from the blue of the Cleland Coat of Arms. Those with the name Cleland, Clelland, Cleeland, Clealand, Kneland, Kneeland, Niland and some MacClelland are more than welcome to wear this tartan.
