  • Notes: The centrepiece of this vibrant tartan is the Avenue of the Americas - Sixth Avenue, Manhattan, host to the annual Tartan Day Parade in America's largest city. The six-lane avenue is bordered by green for the city's many trees and parks and the white lines on maritime blue represent the three organisations who inaugurated the parade, the St. Andrew's Society of New York State, the Caledonian Club of New York and the American Scottish Foundation founded in 1756, 1856 and 1956 - the numeral coincidence of 56 being recorded in threads in the small blue square.. Finally, the colours of three important flags are represented in the design - the blue, white and orange of New York city's own flag, the red, white and blue of the Star Spangled Banner and the blue and white of the Scottish Saltire. The design was initiated and donated by the Scottish Tartans Authority in appreciation of the long-serving volunteers who make this annual event possible. The registration and the first 30 metres of tartan was kindly donated by the National Records of Scotland (Scottish Register of Tartans).
