Why Feature This Tartan?
Colorado is proud to have our very own tartan! On March 3rd, 1997 the Colorado General Assembly adopted a House Joint Resolution designating an official Colorado State Tartan. The tartan is a pattern and colors that symbolize Colorado's splendor and history. The pattern or sett consists of primary blocks of forest green and cerulean blue separated by broad dividing bands of black, with the forest green checks containing two pairs of tram tracks consisting of lavender and white and with the cerulean blue checks containing a gold stripe with red guard lines. The official state tartan is a Celtic district tartan that may be worn by any resident or friend of Colorado whether or not of Celtic heritage.
