Tartan Details - Halesowen #2

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Halesowen #2" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 7845
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: Halesowen already has two coats of arms, the inspiration that the designer used for the tartanI is the older mediaval one. The main colour of the plaid is royal blue, that being the main heraldic and sporting colour of the town. In the centre is a band of white representing the chevron from the original coat of arms with a thin 'outline' in yellow referencing the adaptation of the original arms used for the original grammar school and various sports teams. The navy blue section was added to make the overall design look more balanced and has sometimes been used as a sporting colour in the town as well as of royal blue. The three lines of yellow make reference to the three golden fleur-de-lys in the arms.

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.
