Tartan Details - Chisholm Colonial

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

STA ref: 7791
STWR ref: none
Designer: Kat Moore
Tartan date: 22/01/2008
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Designed by Kat Moore from Kansas, who is a twelfth generation Chisholm of her American-Scots line. Her rationale for the tartan is as follows: "In order to begin a new life in distant lands, ocean crossings had to be made for most of our families. The blues are representative of the oceans. The brown literally represents the earth of the lands colonized. The Chisholm badge is the fern. The fern green represents our ties to our clan and to Scotland. The blood red represents the blood that all Chisholms, worldwide, share by birth and heritage." Approved(September 2008) by Chief Hamish Chisholm of Chishom. Woven by D C Dalgliesh, and organised through Duncan Chisholm & Sons Ltd, of Inverness.

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.
