This tartan has been created to celebrate ‘Tartan Day 6th April 2002’ in New York City on the occasion of the greatest parade of Pipes and Drums yet seen. The tartan depicts the colourings of the streets and buildings of the city. With the green sections representing Central Park. The two black stripes are to honour the memory of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, with the blue section recognising the island of Manhattan surrounded by the Hudson, Harlem & East Rivers. It is no accident that these colours also depicts those worn by the Celtic nations represented in the world wide pipe band fraternity participating in Tunes of Glory in New York City and significantly the gold/brown stripe also recognises the involvement of American Gilda’s Club Cancer Charity, who with The Marie Curie Cancer Fund in the UK were major recipients of the funds raised at the event.
