Georgia Tartan

The Georgia Tartan was first designed and woven in 1982 in honor of Georgia's Semiquincentenary Celebration which coincided with the 10th Annual Stone Mountain Highland Games. “The Georgia tartan is so special because this state’s very history is woven into the fabric. It is a tartan any Georgia Scot and any proud Georgian can wear with pride."
