Registration notes: The Deaf community (Scotland) tartan was designed by the Tayside Deaf community in widespread consultation with the Scottish grassroots Deaf community, the Scottish Council on Deafness and members of the Cross Party Group on Deafness. This tartan celebrates the wider Scottish Deaf community and Deaf Culture. Deaf community members were prominent in lobbying the Scottish Parliament in 2015 to have the British Sign Language Bill passed. The colours represent the Scottish identity with varying blues and whites for the Scottish flag. The sett is bold and direct to represent Deaf Culture. The Scottish Deaf community and beyond wish to celebrate their empowerment and a coming of age by having its own tartan. The tartan will provide a unique symbol of identity, instil greater self-confidence and make a statement to the hearing world – we are proud of both our heritage and growing emancipation. The Deaf community (Scotland) tartan will be an iconic moment in the history of the Deaf community at home and worldwide. This tartan represents significant empowerment by the Scottish Deaf community who have been isolated and marginalised for generations.
