Tartan Details - Colorado

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

STA ref: 4554
STWR ref: 2787
Designer: Pahls, Rev. John B.
Tartan date: 01/01/1997
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Designed by Rev. John B. Pahls, 1995. Adopted by the Colorado general Assembly on March 3rd 1997. House Joint Resolution 97-1016 described the colour symbolism: 'The crispness of the colour blue captures the beauty of the clear Colorado skies and the coolness of forest green renders images of pine and spruce that grace the mountains with dignity. The contrasting colours of lavender and white are reflective of the granite mountain peaks and the snow that crowns them in the winter months, and are also found in the state flower, the white and lavender columbine. The brilliance of the colour gold signifies the vast wealth of mineral resources to which the mining industry was attracted and on which the state's early economy was built; and the colour red distinguishes the 'C' on the state flag and signifies the red sandstone soil which gave the area its name Colorado, meaning red in Spanish.'

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.
