Registration notes: Tartan is one of the most recognisable cultural icons anywhere the world, but it is also a metaphor for interconnectedness, interdependence and diversity and thus can be used to illustrate humanity's desire for a harmonious and sustainable future. The World Peace Tartan was created as a contribution from fashion and design to promote a global message of peace. The striking wool weave has a base colour of light blue, which is representative of the presence, hope and potential of the United Nations. Scotland is represented at the heart of this enterprise through the purple and green of the Scottish thistle. The red and black in the design represent and remind us of the realities of war and violence and the great need for a new living culture of non violence. The white running through the pattern provides a counterbalance, a symbol of peace and light.
