Registration notes: A 111th anniversary tartan celebrating the teddy bear, which originated from a Mississippi bear hunt on 14th November 1902, where Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear tied to a willow tree. The tartan represents Roosevelt's hunt and the resultant political cartoon (printed two days later in the Washington Post) which inspired the creation of 'Teddy's Bear'. Colours: 26 grey threads represent Roosevelt the 26th US President whose image is hewed in grey granite of Mount Rushmore; six black threads recognizes Roosevelt's 1906 Nobel Peace Prize, with black and beige together representing the American Black Bear; brown portrays the traditional colour of the teddy bear, with 32 threads referring to Mississippi as the 32nd largest US state; green represents the willow tree; white is a tribute to Roosevelt's renaming of the White House in 1901. The geometry is created from the two relevant dates; 14th November 1902 as 14, 11, 19 and 2 threads; 16th November 1902 as 16, 11, 19 and 2 threads.
