Registration notes: 2012 marks the 300th year of Craven County, North Carolina, USA. The 300th Anniversary District 2 Committee, under the leadership of Chairperson, Kelly Beasley, voted for a Craven County Tartan to represent the large number of Craven County residents with Scottish heritage. The colours are drawn from the Craven County Coat of Arms, the waterways, rivers and streams, sky, colonial history, governors, royalty, the military, education, and the agricultural background of the county, as well as forestry, tobacco, indigo, and its many other crops. Brian Dodds designed the tartan, submitting four ideas of which the District 2 committee selected Pattern #2. The tartan has been approved by the Craven County 300th Anniversary Committee and the Craven County Board of Commissioners, with the Board signing a resolution on 16 April, 2012. Ila McIlwean White-Lewis volunteered to pay to register the tartan and to have sufficient tartan woven for a banner to be displayed in the Craven County Courthouse.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
