The Isle of Man manx kilt is yet one more example of the Celtic influence across the Northern half of Europe. The Island has as long a Celtic history as Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and other parts of Southern England.
There are eleven District Tartans for the island, plus two others which are the most popular. The Laxey Manx Tartan is the most recognizable and used frequently to represent all variations of Manx tartan as there are just so many!
It incorporates the blue for the sea, green for the hills, gold for the gorse, purple for the heather and white for the cottages.
