Tartan Details - Blue Ridge Highlands Heritage

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Blue Ridge Highlands Heritage" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6637
STWR ref: none
Designer: Hutcheson, Oxley, Raisbeck & Sampson
Tartan date: 01/04/2005
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Based on the McCallum tartan, this has been designed by four members of the Scottish Foundation of the Virginia Highlands (SFVH): Jean Oxley (also the weaver), Elberta Raisbeck, Anne Sampson and the SFVH President, Charlene Dixon Hutcheson. The tartan commemorates the early settlers of the Blue Ridge Mountains who were 75% Scots and Scots-Irish and the colours reflect those of the Mountains. There is a previous 'Blue Ridge' tartan for the same area but its use was complicated by copyright problems which is why this new one has been designed which is wholly owned by the SFVH and which is free for use by anyone - regardless of State - in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Information notes: STA has a 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.
