Scots company creates official Ukraine tartan to show solidarity with war-torn country

A SCOTS clothing brand has created a unique tartan to reflect the country’s solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

Great Scot announced yesterday that all profits from their officially registered Ukraine Forever tartan will go to The Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal.

The company, based in Keith, Moray, created the tartan to show Scotland’s support to Ukraine during their battle against Russia.

The tartan comprises both countries’ flags – yellow, blue and white – fused together and has been officially registered on The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Items available in the tartan include kilts, scarfs, waistcoats, picnic blankets and even ponchos.

Prices range from £5 to £525 and are available to pre-order now for delivery in May.

Skye McCoy, one of the founders of Great Scot, took to Facebook on Tuesday to reveal their exciting creation, writing: “Well we did it.

“This tartan is called Ukraine Forever.

“The Great Scot team meticulously designed it to reflect Scotland’s solidarity with the people of Ukraine; one sovereign nation to another.

“The colour elements of both flags are fused together.

“It’s a strong and emotive tartan. It will endure.

“The Ukraine Forever tartan will be a key part of our company’s fund raising efforts to support the Ukrainian Humanitarian appeal and the related Disasters Emergency.

“We will weave, we will cut and we will sew for a better tomorrow.”

The post has received over 6,000 shares and hundreds of comments from people who loved the new tartan.

Jane Cunningham said: “I love that tartan, it looks so fresh and beautiful.

Jeanette Guest said: “It is absolutely beautiful.

Money is being used to provide aid to the worst affected areas.

The Disasters Emergency Committee said since their appeal was launched they had raised over £1 million a per hour.
