Tartan Details - Tulsa, City of

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Tulsa, City of" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 712
STWR ref: 712
Designer: Crawford/McIntosh/Notley
Tartan date: 01/01/1978
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: This is the count from District tartans book. Scottish Tartans Society notes: The tartan was designed by Richard Crawford, Chinnubbie McIntosh, and Bea Notley, and supported by the Mayor of Tulsa, Robert J. La Fortune who issued a proclamation to 'endorse and ordain the establishment of the Tulsa tartan'. Tulsa is situated on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma, a State much settled by Scots. Tulsa Pipe Band site states: 'Tulsa is the only city outside the British Commonwealth to own its own district tartan, officially registered with Lord Lyon, King of Arms.' (Brian Wilton from the Scottish Tartans Society, note: there is no record of this appearing in Lord Lyon books). 'The colours were chosen to represent the distinctive features and influences of Tulsa and Green Country. The red is for the Native Americans, the blue represents the area lakes, the green is for green country, and the black represents petroleum.' Confusion was caused in 1985 when an erroneous weave appeared from Amana Mills in Iowa who had taken the count as being the full sett rather than the pivot (Alistair Buchan, Lochcarron).

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.
