April 6

National Tartan Day

National Tartan Day

The Scottish Declaration of Independence was signed on April 6, 1320. The American Declaration of Independence was, in fact, modelled on this particular document. Almost half of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence were of Scottish descent.

The US Senate Resolution on National Tartan Day was passed on March 20, 1998. From that point onward, National Tartan Day was designated as a day for all Americans, particularly those of Scottish descent, on April 6 each year.








NYC has the biggest in the U.S. but where ever there are Scotsmen there will be tartan worn!

I personal love my Daughters of the American Revolution tartan because I feel like it covers all of my Scottish roots and

it is a beautiful red, white and blue pattern.
