Tartan date: 07/07/2009

Registration notes: This tartan is owned by the Leon and Walker families. Following Tartan Day Scotland 2008, three South Africans approached Angus Council with a view to develop a Tartan Day South Africa celebration. This has resulted in a Tartan Day South Africa Golf Challenge across 15 courses in the country, with the four winners attending the Tartan Day Scotland International Golf Challenge in 2010. Strathmore Woollen Co Ltd designed this tartan to commemorate the links between Scotland and South Africa. The colours incorporated in the sett of the tartan convey the following: blue represents one of the many shades of Blue in the night skies of South Africa; green represents the South African Veldt; red represents the fine Wines of South Africa; yellow represents the gold on which the South African economy stands; white represents the partnership with Scotland by completing the formation of the Saltire.
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.
