- The World Peace Tartan -
was created to promote a global message of peace.
The striking light blue in the design is representative of the presence, hope and potential of the United Nations. Scotland is represented at the heart of this enterprise through the purple and green of the Scottish thistle. The red and black in the design represent and remind us of the realities of war and violence with the white running through the pattern providing a counterbalance in being symbolic of peace and light.
