  • Notes: Designed in November 1998 by Betty Johnston of House of Tartan in Canberra, Australia. It is reported that the state took over the copyright in 2005 preparatory to its being accepted as the official state tartan in June 2008 and launched by the state Premier John Brumby. The colours depicted within the 'sett' of the Victoria State Tartan are historically linked with the armorial bearings for the State of Victoria. Design rationale: DARK BLUE - Represents the blue azure of the shield on the Victoria Coat of Arms and the background of the Victorian State flag originating from the British Blue Ensign. WHITE - The five white stripes within the tartan represents the five white stars of the constellation of the Southern Cross unique to the Southern Hemisphere and attached on the shield in the Victorian Coat of Arms from 1870. GREEN - Represents the live branch the grassy mount on which the two female figures stand which supports the motto for the State," Peace and Prosperity". PINK - Represents the State floral emblem of Victoria, the Common Pink Heath adopted in 1958. LIGHT BLUE - Depicted within the centre of the 'sett', is reminiscent of the Eureka Stockade flag displayed in 1854.
