The Carolina Tartan

The Carolina Tartan was designed and registered with the Scottish Tartans Society in 1981 by Peter MacDonald of Crieff, Scotland. The design was based on a Royal Stewart tartan believed to have been worn by king Charles I of England during his marriage, giving it significance since The Carolinas were named after King Charles.[1] It was made the official tartan of North Carolina in 1991 when it was passed by the North Carolina General Assembly.[2] South Carolina followed suit and enacted legislation making the Carolina Tartan its official tartan as well in 2002.[3]
