The Campbell Tartan Ribbon is the modern variant of the Campbell of Argyll tartan. This is the most popular of the Campbell tartans. The dark green and blue undercheck is the Government Tartan (Black Watch) with a single white and gold overcheck.
The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (a regiment raised by and drawn from Campbells) wear the Government Tartan and the tartan has been referred to as both "Campbell" and "Sutherland", as it was on the tartan of the Campbells, staunchly loyal to the British crown, that the new "Government Tartan" was based after the Jacobite rebellion of 1745. Most military tartans are based on the Government Tartan with different coloured overchecks to denote various regiments e.g. a white overcheck for the the Douglas tartan of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), a gold overcheck for the Gordon Highlanders and so on.
