The Official Tartan of the New York Tartan Day Parade

In appreciation of the long-serving volunteers who make this annual event possible, this special design has been donated by the Scottish Tartans Authority and registered and woven with major support from the Scottish Register of Tartans.
The design features the six-lane Avenue of the Americas – Sixth Avenue, Manhattan – host to the annual Tartan Day Parade. The avenue is bordered by green for the city’s many trees and parks and the white lines on the maritime blue represent the three organizations who inaugurated the parade: the St. Andrew’s Society of New York State, the New York Caledonian Club and the American Scottish Foundation. Finally, the design includes the blue, white, and orange of the New York City flag; the red, white, and blue of the Star Spangled Banner; and the blue and white of the Scottish Saltire.
