Reference: 10851
Designer: Dilbeck, Alice
Tartan date: 15/01/1991
Registration date: 26 June 2013
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Designed in 1991 by Alice Dillbeck for the Alaskan Scottish Club, a non-profit organization established to promote the Scottish culture, heritage and teachings to the people of Alaska. Colours: rose reflects a winter sunset on Denali’s (Mount McKinley) lofty top, a summer offer of shooting stars, and wild rose hips; green suggests magnificent forests, short stalk sedge, lingonberry, and saxifrage; gold recalls the great North Star, the miners’ golden dream, tamarack, birch, and aspen mirrored in a stream; white the ice, the snow, the lights of the Auroras; blue is for the sky, forget-me-nots, the open sea, the deep cold azure of lakes, the glaciers’ mysterious hue and for the Scottish origins of many Alaskans.
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.
