Tartan Details - Firenze ~ Florence

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Firenze ~ Florence" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6756
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/08/2005
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Based on an ancient woven artefact dating from 400 to 1200 BC discovered in the Halstatt region of Austria which was once part of the ancient Etruscan civilisation. The red, yellow and white are from the Coat of Arms, not only of the City of Florence itself, but also of the great Medici family whose artistic bequest has made Florence one of the world's greatest cultural centres. The ivory white can also represent the City's incomparable collection of classic statues and the blue lines in the yellow bands represent the River Arno flowing through the Tuscan landscape and the City of Florence. The green, white, blue and red are the team colours of Florence's legendary costume football game - calcio storico fiorentino which dates back to Roman times. Finally, to bring the Firenze Tartan into the 21st century, the broad purple band represents Fiorentina - the City's famous football team and nestling in that purple band is the green, white and red of the Italian flag.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
