Registration notes: Designed for Presley Tribute Artist Robert Ainsley of Port Seton, Scotland. Based on the 'America' tartan designed in 1975 and presented to US First Lady Betty Ford in 1976. That original America sett was designed by a J. Cumming of Forfar - the county adjacent to that where Elvis Presley's forebears originated. This adaptation retains the colours of the US flag and discretely introduces Elvis Presley's favourite colour pink plus a gold band to represent his legendary number of Gold Discs. The white threadcount is 42 which was the 'King's' age when he died. The narrow white is 8 threads and represents the day of the month in which he was born whilst the 8 blue represents the month of the year in which he died.

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.
