Tartan Details - Sri Lanka

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

STA ref: 7224
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/06/2007
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: The Sri Lankan Scottish Tartan was designed not only to commemorate the tragic tsunami disaster of 2004 which devastated so many of Sri Lanka's coastal towns and settlements. It also marked the rebirth of so many communities with financial and practical aid from Scotland - a close cultural and economic friend of Sri Lanka for well over a century. The design incorporates the colours of the Sri Lankan flag - red, green, yellow and orange with the four yellow lines representing the pipul tree leaves from the flag. The black and white in the midst of the blue are the colours of mourning associated with the tsunami but also represent hope for the future and the blue and white Saltire - the flag of Scotland. The green squares are from the Clan Cameron tartan and the Glasgow District tartan and they commemorate the Father of Ceylon Tea, James Taylor from Kicardineshire and Jimmy Lipton from Glasgow's Gorbals, whose enthusiastic promotion of Ceylon tea founded its huge success in the western world.

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.
