Perhaps dating back as far as 1587 but there is some debate as to the validity of the historical evidence. A charter granted to Hector MacLean, Heir of Duart, in the lands of Islay, the feu duty to be payable in the form of 60 ells cloth of white, black and green colours. This may well account for the colours, the proportions being the invention of the Sobieski Stuarts. The count in this display is as it is woven to day. It is double the Vestiarium Scoticum count.
