Registration notes: The Yamaguchi Tsutomu tartan transforms the nuclear hazard sign into a radiant symbol of hope for a nuclear-free future. Its inspiration was the peace memorial ceremonies held every August in Japan and around the world, when lanterns bearing messages of peace are floated to commemorate those who perished in the atom bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki that killed 150,000 people. This tartan is named in honour of the late Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only officially recognised survivor of both atom bomb attacks and an outspoken critic of nuclear weapons. "My life is a dewdrop," goes one of his poems. "Living for fifty years after the atomic bombings; I am still wishing for a nuclear-free world." Permission to adopt the Yamaguchi name was graciously granted by his daughter, Toshiko Yamasaki, with assistance from Hidetaka Inazuka, producer of the documentary film "Twice Bombed: A Legacy of Yamaguchi Tsutomu".
