The tartan holds a very important place in Scotland's clan symbols, amidst clan motto and clan's heraldic icons. It's basically a unique pattern, called a "sett", in a structured series of coloured threads and traditionally, each Scottish clan has its own tartan.

OFFICIAL POSITION ON CLAN CAMPBELL TARTANS Many a Campbell and member of a Campbell sept has sought the answer to that question upon first becoming interested in his or her Scottish heritage. Unfortunately, many have looked to the wrong sources for the answer--namely, to merchants selling tartan goods. There is only one authority on the correct tartan or tartans of a clan: the chief of that clan. Not even the Scottish Tartans Society or the Lord Lyon King of Arms claim such authority...
