Connecticut’s State Tartan
In case you’ve ever wondered or cared, Connecticut has a State Tartan:
The following-described tartan shall be the official tartan of the state: A plaid, with large blue stripes representing Long Island Sound, large green stripes representing forest, medium gray stripes representing granite, red and yellow pin stripes representing autumn leaves and white pin stripes representing snow. The white pin stripes shall be located within every other gray stripe and shall be offset from the center. The thread ratio for the tartan shall be: Blue-10, gray-2, white-1, gray-5, green-8, yellow-1, green-2, red-1, green-8, gray-8 and blue-10. Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 3-110j.
I marvel in amazement at the technical detail of the statute. Whoever drafted the tartan legislation clearly had something very specific in mind.
