Registration notes: This tartan marks the 6th February 2018, exactly 100 years since the 1918 Representation of the People Act was passed, which gave women over the age of 30 the right to vote. This tartan honours suffragettes and all of the key figures who worked for women to be given the right to vote, including Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Wilding Davison. This tartan encompasses the colours of the suffragettes; namely green, white and purple. The suffragette colours had significance as the first letter of each colour represented the words ‘Give Women Votes’. Green represented ‘G’ for ‘Give’; white represented ‘W’ for ‘Women’; violet represented ‘V’ for ‘Votes’.
