Tartan Details - Waipu

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

STA ref: 6510
STWR ref: none
Designer: Waipu residents & Nova Scotian descendents
Tartan date: 01/01/2004
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Commemorative
Registration notes: This tartan was designed to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the arrival of the Nova Scotian settlers to Waipu, New Zealand. It was accompanied by a lengthy poem of explanation - unfortunately too lengthy for inclusion here but it has been stored in the relevant archives. The seven colours in the tartan are for the 7 ships that anchored out beyond the Waipu sand. The green is for the forest and land that the settlers first saw; the red is from the MacFarlane and the yellow and black commemorate the Rev. Norman MacLeod who was the leader of the settlers.

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.
