Norham and Ladykirk (District)
  • Notes: Thread count estimated from computer graphic. Designed by the pupils of Norham & Ladykirk primary school in the Scottish Borders. Norham is in England and Ladykirk is in Scotland. Blue for the River Tweed, red for the pupils' school jumpers, black and white for the keys of the accordion, grey for the stones of the bridge between Ladykirk and Norham and green for the hill at Ladykirk which the pupils can see from their classroom window. Once the colours were agreed, the children had to choose the number of threads for each colour to set up the pattern and Ronnie Hek (whose son attends the school) fed this information into his computer and the Ladykirk-Norham tartan was born! Mr Hek had the finished design woven into a piece of cloth and the new tartan was officially launched at the school on 5th October 2001.
