Registration notes: Voluntary Service Aberdeen (VSA) is the product of a number of local charities merging over the past hundred years and providing caring services to the local community. This tartan was commissioned in 2006 by the VSA from Brian Wilton of the Scottish Tartans Authority. The founders of the VSA would certainly have been familiar with the Gordon tartan upon which this design is based. It uses the VSA's corporate colours of purple, grey, light grey, black and white and the three narrow white lines on the purple represent the three directoratres of the VSA - Children & Family, Older People and Adults & Community. Weaving by Lochcarron of Scotland.

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.
