Official state tartan
The Colorado General Assembly adopted House Joint Resolution 97-1016 on March 3, 1997, 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 district tartan, which may be worn by anyone.
