Well... it makes about as much sense as any other! We here in Texas have our own tartan too! I know Sarida has mentioned it before.

I know that in Scotland, the Chinese and Sikh immigrants have their own official tartan too. Why not, the Scots (and Celts for that matter) have always been a welcoming people.

I do like the Texas colors though.

Don't forget, we Scots are Celts!

Are you aware that there are Welsh Tartans now too? There is a national Tartan based on the Welsh colours, green, white and red as well as a black and yellow tartan based on the flag of St. David, Wales' patron Saint. However, the chance for each of the Welsh Counties to vote for their own tartan started in the 1980's, (I think) and now, the Welsh Tartan Centre offers both Trousers and Kilts in the different tartans.

Alot of the older people think its a load of crap, however the younger Welsh Lads, are fast becoming proud to wear kilts in Welsh Tartans at their weddings.

Interesting Times.

The Jewish people, like the Scots, have alot in common. They share a similar sad tale of oppression and discrimination. The Scots, Welsh, Irish, Cornish, Brittanians, and Galacians (Spain) are the last Celtic people. Tucked away, forced into the rocky coastal extremities of Europe, and they are the survivors from what can only be called a lucrative genocide. This was the end game and goal of Julius Caesar in Gaul and then eventually in the tribes of the Britons by other Roman rulers. The Jewish people are a branch from a larger Semetic race, but so many of the other Semetic people have been lost, scattered, or destroyed. The Jewish are of the tribe of Jedea (I'm sure I spelled it wrong). So your tartan is a remarkable blending of two cultures who have perservered through horrendous hardships and strife. When the government troops at The Colloden Moor defeated Jocobite Scots, the forced "Union", saw the complete assimilation and near destruction of the tartan. To me, your tartan, is the manifested incarnation of true perserverance.

Great Job Bruce! :)

I noticed this in a program for the local highland games a while back. Pretty odd these days, there's even a California tartan. Though I live here, I'll stick to my traditional tartan, thank you very much. Somebody must be really bored to create these things.

Not bad... Most Iron Age tartans I have seen were a great deal simpler though. I think modern Scottish tartans are more modern and I don't see any reason to believe that in ancient times particular clans and tribes had an associated tartan.
