Tartan date: 30/07/2009
Registration date: 21 January 2010

Permission is required from the designer to weave this tartan.

Registration notes: Designed, firstly for the Clydesdale breed and then further extended to include all heavy work horse breeds in Australia, in recognition of the heavy horses in the establishment of agriculture in Australia and the revival of their use in the new millennium. The main colours of the tartan represent the breed of heavy horses. The dark grey and black also represents the use of horses in industry, with green for Australian agriculture and brown for the ploughed fields. The tartan was first displayed at the St Helter's Heavy Horse Field Day at Muswellbrook on the 8th August 2009. The first woven tartan was in the form of a woollen scarf, hand-woven in Australian Merino Wool and donated as a trophy for the day and displayed on the grounds for public viewing.
Information notes: To view woven sample, please request NAS6/O6/Oversize.
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.
