Tartan Details - American Bi-Centennial

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "American Bi-Centennial" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 91
STWR ref: 91
Designer: Scarlett MBE, Jamie
Tartan date: 01/01/1975
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Commemorative
Registration notes: Designed in response to an idea put forward by Mr JC Thomson in 1974, that there should be an identifying tartan for American St Andrews and Caledonian societies. Where the lighter stripes cross each other in the dark blue, there is an effect of the stars of the American flag. The thirteen alternate red and white stripes appear in the full sett of the tartan. This tartan started life as the American Bi-Centennial but was then modified and the name changed to American St Andrews Societies.

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.
