Designer: Jenkins, Miss M Patricia
Tartan date: 01/05/1962
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Restrictions:
Registration notes: Designed by Miss M Patricia Jenkins, founder of The Loomcrofters of Gagetown, New Brunswick for the Lions Clubs International, a community service organisation dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why. Local Clubs are part of the world's largest such organisation, with more than 1.35 million members within 45,000 clubs, serving in 200 countries and geographical areas. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian. The Scottish Tartans Society cloth archive specimen is said to differ slightly in the precise numbers of threads. Purple & Gold are the Lions' colours and azure and white are those of the United Nations organisation, indicating the worldwide character of the organisation. The Black and white are said to signify the world's needs and the Lions' efforts to answer them. The design 'portrays the Lions working throughout the world to bring light out of darkness whether that darkness be blindness, war, poverty, ignorance or some other world problem.'

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.
