The Scottish Tartans World Register recognizes two tartans with Arkansas connections, the Natural State Tartan and the Arkansas Traveler Tartan. Shown here is the Natural State Tartan as presented to Governor Mike Huckabee for the state’s first Tartan Day on April 6, 1999. The colors are representative of different aspects of the state. The green represents nature, red recognizes the original settlers, white represents diamonds, and black represents oil. The tartan, woven in Scotland, is of pure silk.
