Tartan Details - Norham and Ladykirk

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Norham and Ladykirk" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 3333
STWR ref: 2823
Designer: Hek, Ronnie
Tartan date: 01/03/2001
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Designed by the pupils of Norham & Ladykirk primary school in the Scottish Borders. Norham is in England and Ladykirk is in Scotland. Colours: blue for the River Tweed; red for the pupils’ school jumpers; black and white for the keys of the accordion; grey for the stones of the bridge between Ladykirk and Norham; and green for the hill at Ladykirk which the pupils can see from their classroom window. Once the colours were agreed, the children had to choose the number of threads for each colour to set up the pattern and Ronnie Hek (whose son attends the school) fed this information into his computer and the Ladykirk-Norham tartan was born! Mr Hek had the finished design woven into a piece of cloth and the new tartan was officially launched at the school on 5th October 2001. (info from and Matt Newsome).

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.
