Registration notes: Designed by Rocky Roeger and Officer Tim Welch. The grey (silver) and the gold are for the police officers' badges. The horizontal black columns that cross the badge lines represent the mourning bands the officers wear over their badges when an officer dies. The royal blue represents the fallen officers and living men and women who currently serve or are retired from law enforcement. There are 36 threads in each of the two black columns which total 72 - the number of police officers who died on 9/11. Those columns represent the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The thin blue line between them represents the line between order and chaos. Green is for the Irish community which has contributed so many serving officers over the decades.

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.
