Our Tartan

Ancient Lindsay Tartan

From the band early days untill 2015, we  wore the Ancient Lindsay Tartan. The sett is similar to Stewart of Athol, but for the black, rendered in Lindsay as dark blue. The name Lindsay first appeared in the Borders of Scotland in the 12th century.



Red Lichtie Tartan

The Red Lichtie Tartan was designed and registered by Steven Patrick Sim, a local tartan designer to Arbroath in 2012. The Arbroath Pipe Band proudly adopted the tartan for our kilts in 2015.

Our Cap Badge

Since our rebranding the bands logo and cap badges depict the iconic St. Catherine wheel window of the Arbroath Abby more commonly known as the "Round O" . 


Prior to the rebranding the band used the Royal British Legion Cap Badge and Logo. 


The cap badge was designed by a member of the band.
