Tartan Details - New York Tartan Day Parade

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "New York Tartan Day Parade" tartan is shown below.

Registration date: 9 January 2012
Category: Corporate

Registration notes: The centrepiece of this vibrant tartan is the Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue, Manhattan) host to the annual Tartan Day Parade in America's largest city. The six-lane avenue is bordered by green for the city's many trees and parks and the white lines on maritime blue represent the three organisations who inaugurated the parade, the St Andrew's Society of New York State, the Caledonian Club of New York and the American Scottish Foundation founded in 1756, 1856 and 1956 respectively (the numeral coincidence of 56 being recorded in threads in the small blue square). Finally, the colours of three important flags are represented in the asymmetric design: the blue, white and orange of New York city's own flag; the red, white and blue of the Star Spangled Banner; and the blue and white of the Scottish Saltire. The design and the first fabric woven were donated by the Scottish Tartans Authority in appreciation of the long-serving volunteers who make this annual event possible. The registration in the Scottish Register of Tartans was donated by the National Records of Scotland.
Information notes: To view woven sample, please request NAS6/O6/Object.
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.
