STA ref: 1095
STWR ref: 1095
Designer: Ikelman, Douglas
Tartan date: 01/07/1996
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Fashion
Registration notes: Declared in August 1997 by Douglas C. Ikelman as a general tartan for Americans of German extraction. It is not Germany's official tartan - to be that it would require the German government's approval. Lochcarron swatch from 2002. Design (the colours are those of the German flag) assisted by Peter MacDonald and Bob Martin and first length handwoven by Peter MacDonald of Crieff, Scotland. July 2005: Douglas Ikleman has requested of the German Consulate in the US that they recognise, note or adopt this tartan but they have declined saying that they don't 'wish to go on record as approving one product over another'.

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.
