  • Notes: Designed by Jeremy Goddin, Morvyn Hood & Fiona Hall to reunite the scattered members of the family and to commemorate their heritage. Three natural shades of brown forming a check commemorating the Falkirk tartan, dark green commemorating the Great Wood of Caledon of which part lay within the Kingdom of Gododdin, purple commemorating the Roman connection and particularly king Patern Pesrut, and dark red in remembrance of the blood shed in 604CE at Cattraeth in defence of Gododdin and Edinburgh. The princely House of Gododdin is recorded as rulers of the Kingdom of Gododdin until about 627CE when they were overrun by the Northumbrians. The kingdom of Gododdin extended from Stirling (Iudeu), through Edinburgh (Din Eidyn), Traprain Law (Dunpelder)and Trimontium to their borders with Northumbria and Strathclyde. It included the portion of the Antonine Wall where the Falkirk tartan was concealed cica 240CE. From 627CE the family became progressively scattered with groups joining Strathclyde, their relatives in Cymru (Wales)and in Lesser Britain (Brittany). The name is Brythonic and has developed in modern Welsh to GODDIN, in Brittany to GODIN and GAUDIN. Parts of the Kingdom of Gododdin are sometimes recorded as GADDIN. The name has nothing to do with the later word GOD referring to the deity, but GOD is equivalent to GAD and denotes the Old Testament tribe of that name. This reflects the Scythian descent of the Scots recorded in the Declaration of Arbroath. The name probably comes from the Sumerian silk road village called GODIN TEKE (the settlement of GODIN)cica 3,500 BC.
