Tartan Details - Red Rum

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Red Rum" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1217
STWR ref: 1217
Designer: Edinburgh Woollen Mill
Tartan date: 01/01/1975
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Commemorative
Registration notes: Commemorating the famous race horse Red Rum. Green was for the turf and Maroon and Gold were the racing colours. Red Rum is the only horse in the history of the Grand National Steeplechase to win the race three times, and to make that feat further astonishing, he ran in it two other times and was second. Red Rum returned to Aintree to celebrate his 30th birthday on May 3, 1995. He was humanely put down in his stall at McCain's stable on October 18 and buried that same day in a special grave next to the winning post at Aintree racetrack.

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.
