Registration notes: This 21st century tartan is a variation of the ancient Breacan nan Cleirach, the tartan of the Clergy - which was possibly worn in the Scottish Highlands by men of the church as early as the 1750s. The YMCA tartan incorporates the colours of the world organisation and at its core is the 1844 founding date of the YMCA represented with 18 threads of black and white and 44 threads of blue. Combined with that 1844 beginning, the blue of the oceans links over 45 million members around the globe and celebrates the values, strengths and aspirations of the world's largest 'clan' - the YMCA.
