Tartan Details - Oren Peterson

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Oren Peterson" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10127
Designer: Mark A B Peterson
Tartan date: 01/06/2009
Registration date: 11 January 2010
Category: Name
Registration notes: For the descendants of Lawrens Peterson and Nancy Jones. Also to serve as a tartan for any of the name of Peterson. The tartan was designed to honour the descendants of Oren B Peterson and his wife, Lorraine Besselo, and reflects the military and public service of their family. It also represents their love of the mountains. The large blocks of blue and grey together symbolise the family that was split by the Civil War, but also remained tied together. The smaller stripes represent the veins of service that each generation continues. The grey represents Petersons in the family who fought for the Confederate States of America in the US Civil War, especially Lemuel David Peterson. The blue represents the Petersons of the family who fought in the Union Army in the US Civil War: Jasper D Peterson, Lemuel’s nephew and David T Peterson, Lemuel’s cousin. The green represents the family's connection to the mountains of West Virginia and North Carolina. The white line represents Petersons who have served in the civil service including education, social service, law and clergy. The red stripe represents the Petersons who have served in the military for generations. The purple represents the lavender loved by Lorraine Peterson and is included to honour her. The designer and family wish to thank Matthew A C Newsome, FSA Scot, and member of the Guild of Tartan Scholars for his asssistance in bringing this tartan to life.
