Tartan Details - Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Edinburgh Festival Fringe" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 11722
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/01/2017
Registration date: 24 February 2017
Category: Corporate
Restrictions: Yes. This tartan cannot be offered for sale, woven or printed on commercial products without the express permission of the copyright holders The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.

Registration notes: The Edinburgh Festival Fringe began in 1947 when eight groups arrived in Edinburgh hoping to perform at the newly formed Edinburgh International Festival but were refused entry to the programme. Rather than being discouraged from performing, they went ahead and performed on the fringe of the Festival anyway and so the Edinburgh Festival Fringe was born. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of these eight groups’ defiance and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is now the largest arts festival in the world. The Fringe is a truly open access festival where, in the spirit of the original eight, no one is denied entry, making it the largest platform on earth for creative freedom. This tartan commemorates and celebrates 70 extraordinary years of defying the norm, and pays tribute to the eight groups and to the bright, bold, creative spirit of the Fringe against Edinburgh’s wonderful historic backdrop. The denim blue block with 70 threads represents the city and 70 years, the eight bright yellow lines are the Fringe flame ignited by those eight groups and, when combined with the reds and greens, come together to create a bold, exciting tartan which represents this extraordinary festival. The tartan will be used in and on a variety of promotional items.
