Tartan Details - Victoria State (Australia)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Victoria State (Australia)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 2509
STWR ref: 2509
Designer: Johnston, Betty
Tartan date: 01/11/1998
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Designed in November 1998 by Betty Johnston of House of Tartan in Canberra, Australia. The blue is that of the Eureka Stockade Flag and the pink is the colour of the State's floral emblem the Pink Heath flower. 'We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties.' Beneath the starry flag of rebellion, that oath was taken by hundreds of gold diggers at Ballarat in 1854. The Eureka rebellion led by Peter Lalor was a short lived revolt against petty officialdom and although a military failure, led to political and personal benefits for many Australians.

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.
