Registration notes: The Order of the Tartan' is an organisation formed in the early 80s in Georgia USA for those of Scots descent in the Chattahoochee Valley area of Georgia and Alabahama. Designed by a committee comprising Dan Jones, Charlotte Parker, Jim Short, Brian Wilson and Tamara Paschal, the green is for the pine forests, terra cotta for earth, crimson for the blood shed by Scots through the centuries, grey for the mists, purple for the thistle and blue for the oceans and skies. The organisation wished the tartan to be called 'The Order of the Tartan' tartan which the Authority deemed unacceptable so the official name became Strathgaela with the Order of the Tartan being the alternate. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's records.

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.
