  • Notes: Status not confirmed by assumed 'District.' The Queensland Tartan was designed and woven by Mr Jack Allen of Bundaberg in 1995, of seven basic colours to depict the State of Queensland. Before he died in May 1997 Jack requested the assistance of the Society of St Andrew of Scotland (Bundaberg Branch) and the Scottish Clans Congress of Queensland to help promote the tartan. There were unsuccessful representations to two governments. Over time a hunting version was also created by muting the colours. White - for the small amount of cloud in the winter time. Azure - for the clear blue winter sky, Queensland does not get much rain in winter, and heavy rains in summer. Royal Blue - for the Coral Sea, blue in Hervey Bay, Whitsunday Passage and Hinchinbrook. Yellow - for the tropical beaches of Queensland, sun and sand. Green - for the mountain forests, hardwood forests, pine forests, the grazing fields and farms. Lilac - for the flowers of the sugar cane. Crimson for the States's floral emblam, the Cooktowen Orchid.
