Tartan Details - G8 Summit

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "G8 Summit" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6490
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/12/2004
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Winning design on behalf of the Scottish Tartans Authority in an international competition for a G8 tartan to mark the 2005 G8 Summit hosted by Scotland at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire. The Green and Purple represent the 2005 G8 Summit thistle-logo and red is the one colour present in ALL the G8 nation flags - the common thread that binds them together in their efforts to aid underdeveloped countries. There is one white line for each G8 nation which, together on the dark blue, form the white cross of St Andrew - the flag of their host nation, Scotland. 19 entries were received and an independent panel of judges (including a representative from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office) chose what they considered to be the best three which were then sent to No. 10 Downing Street where Mrs Cherie Blair (the wife of the ex British Prime Minister) made the final choice.

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.
