Tartan Details - Longhaugh Primary School

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Longhaugh Primary School" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6645
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton/ The Children of P4/P5 (2004 intake)
Tartan date: 01/05/2005
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: The first Head Teacher of Longhaugh Primary School was a Mr Graham - a famous historical name associated with Dundee from the early days of James Graham, Marquis of Montrose and John Graham ('Bonnie Dundee') Viscount of Claverhouse. The Graham of Montrose tartan was therefore the obvious choice upon which to base the Longhaugh Primary School tartan. The school's colours are green, blue and white and the central band of green bounded by blue and white is the stripe from the school tie. Red was the most popular extra colour chosen by all the children in the school, followed by purple. The broad purple bands have three lines (one each for Dundee's famous three 'Js' - jute, jam and journalism). The colours of the Graham tartan are the same as the school's colours with the addition of black which here is shown between the two red lines and represents Dundee-based publishers D.C.Thomson's Beano comic characters - Desperate Dan (his hair, hat band, moustache and waistcoat are all black) and Dennis the Menace whose hair is black as are the hoops in his sweater. His dog Gnasher is likewise black. The year of the School's foundation (1958) is represented by the number of purple threads either side of the 'three J's' and the number of children in P4/P5 who designed the tartan was 24 - each of them commemorated by a blue thread. Woven sample.

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.
