Tartan Details - Glengarry Highland Games

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Glengarry Highland Games" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 2638
STWR ref: 2638
Designer: Smith, Donald Suttie
Tartan date: 05/10/1999
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Three years ago this tartan was created as a special millennium project. Working with the late Don Smith of Heraldic Graphics in Glasgow, Scotland the Glengarry Highland Games Tartan Committee of Connie Blaney, Margaret Arkinstall, and the late Margery Stewart came up with a striking design composed mainly of the red and blue colours of our logo with the addition of green, black and white. A hand woven sample of the tartan was first made by a firm in Newton, North Carolina. This sample was sent to the Scottish Tartan Society in Pitlochry, Scotland to be Officially Registered. Following the registration on November 6th, 1999, Strathmore Woolen Co. in Forfar, Scotland was commissioned to weave the new tartan. In early April 2000 the tartan was completed.

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.
