Tartan Details - Falklands, The

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Falklands, The" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 12314
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/06/2014
Registration date: 30 November 2018
Category: District
Restrictions: Yes. May only be worn/used by those authorised by the copyright holders The Falkland Islands Government or its appointed agents.
This tartan cannot be offered for sale or woven without the express permission of the copyright holder The Falkland Islands Government or its appointed agents.

Registration notes: This design is based on an old Stewart tartan in recognition of Scotland's Royal House of Stewart's long association with historic Falkland Palace, the ancient home of Scottish kings and the source of Viscount Falkland's title, whose name was first connected with the Islands in 1690. The focal point is the colours of the Union Jack centred in a vast ocean of blue, framed by the brilliant colours of the islands' most outstanding wildlife, the King Penguin. White also represents the Falklands' southern neighbour - the great Antarctic continent - and blue and red are for the early settlers, blue for the Scottish Saltire and red for the Welsh dragon. The red and black also serve as permanent memorials to the blood and lives lost on all sides during territorial conflicts in the Southern Atlantic. This 21st century adaptation is a celebration of the Islands' unique history and heritage and its proud and inviolable status as a British overseas territory.
