Registration notes: Designed to acknowledge and celebrate Scotland's world class reputation for research and development in science, engineering and technology. The tartan also recognises Scotland's strength as a global leader in industrial innovation, and its contribution to the UK's aerospace and bioscience industries, with many major international companies having associated operations based in Scotland. The Titanium tartan is universal and is for all organisations, groups and individuals that want to be represented by a modernistic twenty-first century tartan. First discovered at the end of the 18th century Titanium (an element represented by the symbol Ti) has the greatest strength to weight ratio of all metals, being the only element possessing the strength of steel, with a weight comparable to that of aluminium. This means it is both very strong and extremely light. This along with its high resistance to corrosion, as well as its superior bio-compatibility makes Titanium a key element in the advancement of Scotland's aerospace and life-science technologies. The name of the element was derived from the Titans of Greek mythology, famed for their legendary and superior strength. Designed by Steven Patrick Sim the Titanium tartan was discovered by extrapolating a thread-count formula from the element's position within the Periodic Table (group 4, period 4), and its atomic number (of 22 atoms). This series of numbers proportionally increased by 3 (as dictated by the 3 main constituent parts of the atom; protons, neutrons, and electrons) resulted in the creation of the tartan's geometry. Colours: the dark grey, grey, light grey and white represent the colours as reflected in the metallic, and lustrous element, Titanium. The tartan acts also as a tribute to the award winning, and iconic, Glasgow Science Centre (the largest Millennium Commission-funded project in Scotland) which is clad in Titanium.
