Deeside Plaid (Taobh Dhi) (District)
  • Notes: Designed 1963 by Fenton Wynes on behalf of Dee Valley Textiles, Ltd. Waverley House, Aberdeen. Called 'Seaside' by West Coast Woolen Mills, Vancouver in 1975. Sample in STA's Johnston Collection. An original cutting shows the grey to be 'speckled' - a mixture of grey and black a little like the Balmoral grey. The grey represents the granite, the blue the River Dee and the two mountain ranges (Cairngorms and Grampians); green is for the forests, white the birch trunks and snow, yellow the broom and gorse and purple is for the heathers and the Celtic dynasties "and their present day succesors, the House of Windsor" (Britain's Royal Family).
