The Virginia Quadricentennial tartan is an official state tartan of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Originally named "Measure plc", it was designed in 2003 by David McGill of International Tartans for the marketing of several products, including the now defunct Kinmount Scotch Whisky. In 2005, during preparations for Jamestown 2007, which celebrated the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Colony of Virginia, it was selected as Virginia's tartan because the colors reflected those of the American dogwood, the Virginia state flower and tree. It was renamed "Virginia" in 2005, and in 2007 it was made official by Governor Tim Kaine and given its current name.
