About Saint Ninian Tartan.....

The design for Saint Ninian tartan was created by Matthew Newsome, director of the Scottish Tartans Museum in Franklin, North Carolina to commemmorate the visit of Pope Benedict to Scotland in 2010. The white line on blue field draws upon Scotland's national colors while the green reflects the lichens growing on the stones of Whithorn in Galloway. It was there that St. Ninian first brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Scottish shores over 1,600 years ago. The thin yellow lines in the tartan, together with the white, reflect the colors of the Vatican. In terms of the weaving, each white line on the green contains exactly eight threads, one for each Catholic diocese in Scotland; there are 452 threads in the design from pivot to pivot, representing the number of Catholic parishes in Scotland.
