The operation, codenamed OVERLORD, delivered 5 naval assault divisions to the beaches at Normandy in France, facing Hitler’s Atlantic Wall. By days end, some 156,000 Allied soldiers landed on the beaches. The Battle of Normandy lasted 85 days, it was the beginning of the end of WWII. This tartan is intended to reflect that historic event. The threadcount within the tartan represents the date of D-Day 06-06-1944. 5 within the weave represents the beaches where soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice so that other may enjoy the freedoms held today. Red, white & blue in this design mirrors the colours of the flags nations fought under during that historic event. The black lines in the tartan are intended to represent dignity & honour of the brave men & women that laid down their lives during WWII. It was also utilized to openly show sadness, grief & mourning.
