Tartan Day, 6 April




 

I'd never heard of Tartan Day until recently. It commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath on 6 April 1320 during the Scottish Wars of Independence. It affirmed the Scots's right to independence of England.

The Declaration is believed to have considerably influenced the American Declaration of Independence.

The tartan is pretty. I think it's a good idea to have an official tartan!
