Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Commemorative
Registration notes: Designed by Ramsay Johnstone of Edinburgh Woollen Mill. worn by athletes in parade. Still a popular fashion tartan in 1994. This entry incorporates the threadcount from #621 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) which the Tartans Society entry said was the weft of the tartan. #621 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) notes read as follows: Designed by Ramsay Johnstone of Edinburgh Woollen Mill. worn by the 230 athletes and the officials in the parade. The colours depict the blue of the Scottish flag, the white the running lanes on the track, and red the finishing tape at the end of each race. Still a popular fashion tartan in 1994. #621 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) used Royal Blue as the ground colour whereas 1892 for the warp used light blue. Needs resolving by looking at a woven sample.

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.
