Tartan Details - Nunavut Territory

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

STA ref: 7705
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: The Nunavut tartan design looks to Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit in the selection of an eight-color palate, with white being used for four of the eight colors; dark blue, light purple, yellow and black are the remaining dye lots. The colours were chosen to represent the following: Dark Blue - the deep, icy, blue waters, which were and still are vital to the people, and the richness of the blue depicts the richness of the culture. Darker tartans are recognized as being hunting tartans, and with hunting being a large part of the Inuit Culture, this is also reflected by the dark blue. White - the use of this colour four times represents the great impact that ice and snow has upon the lifestyle in the north, while depicting the purity of the new Territory. Yellow - represents the return of the sun to the north every year, the warmth of its people and the bright future ahead. Light purple - Represents the Territorial Flower, the Saxifrage. Black - the vast mineral resources found within the tundra.

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.
