Tartan Details - Goose Watch (Anser albifrons flavirostris)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Goose Watch (Anser albifrons flavirostris)" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 11809
Designer: Cooper, Kathryn, Dream Weaving Studio

Registration date: 29 May 2017
Category: Other
Restrictions: Yes. The tartan cannot be offered for sale, woven or printed without the express permission of the designer.

Registration notes: Created for an exhibition, this tartan was inspired whilst on a ‘goose walk’ organised by RSPB Loch Lomond. The source of the inspiration came from observing the white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons flavirostris) who travel from their breeding ground in Greenland to the beautiful Loch shores each winter. The colours chosen are symbolic of those of the birds to which they relate and white was given more prominence in homage to their name. The tartan will be used to celebrate the beauty of the geese and to help raise their profile as an endangered species. RSPB (Scotland) endorse the application for this design and it is envisaged that its creation will assist with the continuing efforts to conserve nature and the surrounding scenery that will protect the future survival of these striking birds.
