Tartan Details - World Youth Congress

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

STA ref: 6489
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/12/2004
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Designed by Brian Wilton of the Scottish Tartans Authority for the Scottish Executive Education Department. The global importance of the World Youth Congress is symbolised in this unique tartan with red representing the equator, yellow the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn and white the two polar extremities. The three white lines on blue represent the Scottish Saltire flag and commemorate this, the third World Congress being held in Scotland. Green, blue and yellow are also the corporate colours of this year's Congress and represent land, sea and sun. Further symbolism can be attached to white as life giving water and environmental purity; to green for the land and economic growth and to blue for the oceans which link the world's major continents. 750 tartan 'kiltongs' (Scottish sarongs) were made in cotton as unisex gifts for the delegates and officers as were semi-postal stamps featuring this tartan and the WYC logo.

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.
