Tartan Details - Commonwealth Games

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

STA ref: 7559
STWR ref: 3038
Designer: Kinloch Anderson Ltd
Tartan date: 01/06/2004
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Restrictions: Yes. Exclusively designed by Kinloch Anderson. Restricted availability. Please contact Kinloch Anderson regarding use.

Registration notes: Designed for the livery of the Scottish Team for the Commonwealth Games and first used for the Games in Melbourne, Australia, 2006. The Commonwealth Games were the brainchild of Bobby Robinson and were first held in Canada in 1930. The name Robinson is associated with the Clan Gunn and therefore the Gunn tartan was used as the base for the new design. Colours: the mid blue colour with the white line through it closely represents the saltire and the bright purple colour was introduced as the colour of the thistle, which features on the Commonwealth Games Council 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.
