Tartan Details - Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 12316
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/11/2018
Registration date: 30 November 2018
Category: Corporate
Restrictions: Yes. May only be worn/used by those authorised by the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.
This tartan cannot be offered for sale or woven without the express permission of the copyright holder the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.

Registration notes: John Kirk MRCVS was the manager of the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home for the first 20 years of its existence and, fittingly, this design is based on ‘his’ tartan - the Maxwell. The Home was established in 1884, here remembered with 18 and 84 threads respectively in the two dark green squares. The bright green is the Home's characteristic colour and the grey band represents the Edinburgh and Lothian streets from where so many of the Home's dogs and cats have been saved. Finally, the red symbolises the warmth, comfort and safety that have surrounded the Home's animal guests since its foundation.
