Tartan Feature Part One: State Tartans of the U.S.A.

Have you ever wondered what your state’s tartan might look like, or if your state has a tartan at all? With the amount of Scottish settlers that came to North America in the 17th-19th centuries, it should come to no surprise that most US states have an official tartan! As of this writing, there are 39 states that have tartans officially adopted by their respective Governor/State Legislatures. Check them out below, and sport your state’s official tartan at your next Scottish event!

If you happen to be in a state that does not have an official tartan, you can still rock a tartan to represent your state as all US States have a tartan design inspired by them (even if they’re “unofficial.”) You can do a tartan search through the Scottish Register of Tartans here!
